I just heard on CNBC that the federal Gov. will vote and repeal the Internet Gambling law that was passed in 2006.  They estimate that the Federal Gov. will bring in approximately 50 Billion in tax revenue. In December when it passes everyone will be able to gamble online again Legally..hahaha..I am excited and cant wait.!!!!

        Yep Todd..the Democrats are going to repeal that law..Barney Frank has already submitted the legislation and it will be voted on in December, next month, is what they said on CNBC..They also said that 50 billion in tax revenue was projected over 10 years..that is not bad..plus the Democrats need the extra money to help pay for all the programs they want to pass..so..GET READY..it is going to pass next month..thats what they said..plus I read on the Internet some time back that alot of the OVERSEAS gambling companies based in Europe were putting a great deal of pressure on the US Gov because of unfair trade stuff..

            I hope that is the case. This law should never have passed in the first place. I think the block heads in Washington, Reps and Dems missed a very big point, when we win money and I did win well from BetSlips, what do you think I did with the money??? 

            I went out and spent it, I put money into the economy, dah!

                There are two bills out there, H.R. 2267 and H.R. 2268, the 2267 deals with safety and the 2268 deals with taxes. They want things to be safe for us so that they get their TAXES.

                          Unforunately some of us have to deal with not only the federal law, but a state law as well. I live in Indiana and it's a class B misdemeanor to gamble over the internet. So even if the federal law is repealed, as long as the state's law exists, I still can't gamble over the internet. We can all pray the state laws that ban internet gambling get repealed too!

                            I am not a lawyer but I beleive Federal law overrides State law.  If the Feds say on-line gambling is OK, the State has no say in the matter.  We fought a Civil War over this some time back.

                              When regulating the same activity, federal law does override state law, however we aren't being given a right to do something by the federal government. What's happening here is a ban is being repealed. In this case, at the federal level, but states can still have their own laws. This repeal could still be a step towards lifting the state bans as well, which I hope it does, but as-is, it doesn't.
