Lawmakers in many states have been discussing the idea of legalizing online gambling in their jurisdictions. Senator Raymond Lesniak has introduced a Bill in New jersey that no only would legalize online poker, but other casino games as well.

Part of the reason that Lesniak is moving ahead of the federal government is his plan to ensure that New Jersey gaming operators have their pick of customers from the state. One of the stipulations in the proposed Bill is that Internet companies must be located in Atlantic County.

The online casino industry would be set up similar to the one in Atlantic City. The age requirements and rules of the games would be patterned after the AC casino industry. The news of the proposed Bill has been welcomed by online gambling supporters.

"We're happy that New Jersey has taken this issue into their own hands," said Interactive Media Entertainment and Gaming Association Chairman Joe Brennan, in a press release, "New Jersey is recognized as having the toughest gaming regulators in the US, but as a leading gaming state with a long track record of doing things the right way, Internet gambling will have a great home here and the opportunity to begin normalizing the industry."

New Jersey is not the only state that is considering legalizing online gambling. California lawmakers are also in the process of developing laws that, if approved, could regulate online poker in California.

On a national level, Representative Barney Frank has introduced legislation that would overturn the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act of 2006. The proposal already has over sixty co-sponsors, and the regulated Internet gambling premise is gaining support of many lawmakers.

In New Jersey, not only would poke be legalized under the new Bill, but also blackjack, craps, roulette, slots, and other casino games that can be found in land-based casinos.
