Utah lawmaker wants to pass anti online gambling law
Utah lawmaker wants to pass anti online gambling law:
Rep. Stephen Sandstrom of the state of Utah, and in reaction to the announcement of the Department of Justice withdrew the Wire Act powers to ban online poker, announced on his website that has already drafted a bill to prohibit not only poker, but throughout the state of your online game.
Sandstrom says that its decision is a response to the proposal that is a vote in Congress, for the adoption of online gambling except in states that choose not to accept the game on its borders.
Sandstrom says that "many critics have seen about the game interpretation of the recent Department of Justice (ed on the Wire Act) plus an ax in the moral foundations of America." Sandstrom also said that the expansion of this industry is nothing more than a "desperate attempt" by the country's economic recovery.
Until now, only Utah and Hawaii do not allow the game, but until now studying the Hawaii legislation to approve the game both online and live. The Utah apparently did not follow the same path.
