Internet gambling bill introduced

John Moe Mar 18, 2011

Reps. Barney Frank (D-N.Y.) and John Campbell (R-Calif.) dropped a bill Thursday that would let online gambling organizations operate in the U .S. legally. This is the second time this bill has been introduced. It made it through committee last summer. The new bill is called Internet Gambling Regulation, Consumer Protection, and Enforcement Act, and it seems like it’s gaining support.
