Federal Online Gambling Legislation: New Attacks Coming

by Wendeen H. Eolis

Just as the 2013 World Series of Poker was beginning to wind up its engines for the main event at the Rio Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Congressman Joe Barton (R-TX-) rolled into town for his third visit to the annual WSOP; this time to rev up support for his updated poker bill in the U.S. House of Representatives. The Poker Players Alliance hosted a Town Hall Meeting designed to preview Barton’s online gambling bill HR 2666, the “Internet Poker Freedom Act of 2013,” which was subsequently introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives, July 12.

While the PPA has been beating the drums for Barton’s “poker only” bill it is also applauding the Internet Gambling Regulation, Consumer Protection and Enforcement Act of 2013  (HR 2282) introduced by Congressman Peter King (R-NY) last month. The King bill proposes “poker plus” other casino game options excluding, sports bets.

Unity is hard to come by in the business of online gambling and this week, from out of the blue,  came a new wrinkle in the debate of online gambling consumer protections. The complexities in bringing online gambling to U.S. players seamlessly across the country grows at every turn, and so does the cast of characters with unique skin in the legislative game—at both the state and federal level.

Rep. Joe Barton introduces The Internet Poker Freedom Act of 2013

On Thursday, Rep. Joe Barton (R-TX) introduced HR 2666, the The Internet Poker Freedom Act of 2013. This bill would license and regulate online poker in the United States.  You can read the bill here.
 
The legislation is similar to a bill Congressman Barton sponsored in 2012 regarding online poker and addresses many of the concerns raised in previous Congressional hearings on the subject.  The new bill focuses exclusively on Internet poker, as opposed to H.R. 2282 an online gambling bill recently introduced by Rep. Peter King (R-NY) that includes online casino games in addition to poker. Rep. Barton’s bill also mandates technologies to protect consumers from fraud and limits underage access, preserves state’s rights, and ensures Indian Tribes have the same rights to apply for a license as other entities. Additionally, the bill:
