Online Gambling Regulation Bill Has Bipartisan Cosponsor Support

Representative John Campbell has re-introduced a bill that Rep. Barney Frank passed out of committee last year regarding online gambling. HR 1174, the Internet Gambling Regulation, Consumer Protection, and Enforcement Act, has been re-introduced back in March, but this time it will be a Conservative lawmaker pushing the legislation.

Campbell was one of the supporters of Frank's bill last year to regulate online gambling in the US. Frank was able to pass the bill out of the House Financial Services committee, but was unable to move the bill to the full House with economic issues taking priority in 2010.

Rep. Campbell took up the cause this year, and he ensured that his co-sponsors were of a bipartisan variety. Of the three co-sponsors, two are Democrats and one is a Republican. Together, the four representatives will attempt to convince other legislators to get on board with the elimination of online gambling prohibition.

Rep. Frank, who has championed the cause of Internet gambling regulations since the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act was created, is one co-sponsor. Frank, from Massachusetts, is joined by Rep. Peter King from New York, and Rep. Ed Perlmutter of Colorado. Not only is the group bi-partisan, but they also represent different areas of the US.

Out West, online poker regulations have been a hot topic in Campbell's state of California. Lawmakers are considering regulating online poker, which would bring millions of dollars in tax revenue to the state.

In Colorado, where Perlmutter is from, gambling expansion has been taking place over the past several years, and it is likely that expansion will continue.

On the East Coast is where the largest gaming expansion has taken place in recent years. King's state of New York has added several new casinos and further development is in the works. In Massachusetts, lawmakers are negotiating the final legislation that will finally bring casino resorts to the state.

It is not yet known when Rep. Campbell will begin to move the online gambling bill through the House. The bill has been referred to the Subcommittee on Financial Institutions and Consumer Credit.
