Judge for yourself.

At least they're moving in the right direction.

"The bill further provides that a license to operate interstate interactive gaming does not become effective until:

(1) the passage of federal legislation authorizing interactive gaming; or
(2) the United States Department of Justice notifies the Commission or the State Gaming Control Board that interactive gaming is permissible under federal law.
 

Las Vegas casino operators have been lobbying heavily in recent weeks to get legislation passed on a federal level.  The Government’s signature could be seen as an important stepping stone in meeting such goals."


Don't hold your breath waiting for either of these to happen.

Does anybody know exactly how it would set up if it becomes legal?  Would it be the Vegas casinos that run the online poker in our country or would it still be offshore companies?
