Across the US, a movement is taking place to urge US lawmakers to change the current online gambling laws in the country. Representative Barney Frank has led the movement in Congress, but as of yet has had no success in changing the laws.

In the past year, individual states have come to the forefront of online gambling expansion. California, New Jersey, and Florida all have legislators that are attempting to convince their peers that Internet gambling regulations would be beneficial, and also what people of their states want.

This week, New Jersey senators have met with gambling being their top issue. The senators have already passed two bills that would help the racing industry in the state, and now they may set their sights on a vote on Internet gambling, specifically online poker, before the end of the year.

Senator Ray Lesniak has been the driving force behind the legislation in New Jersey. The state, under Lesniak's plan, would authorize already existing casinos to start offering their services online for customers. This would help in several different ways for the state.

Residents would not have to spend money on gas, food, and drinks, all expenses that currently have to be accounted for when traveling to land-based casinos. The additional revenue generated by the casinos would be in the millions, and the state would receive a portion of those winnings in tax revenue.

The casinos, specifically AC casinos, would also benefit. The AC casino industry has been ravaged by the economy and competition from neighboring states. Lesniak sees online gambling as a way to answer the recent table game expansion that took place in Pennsylvania.
