Another member of America’s Congress has agreed to co-sponsor
Barney Frank's proposed Bill to legalize and regulate online
gambling in the United States.
Democrat Robert Scott has agreed to support Frank’s House of
Representatives Bill 2046, the Internet Gambling Regulation and
Enforcement Act (IGREA) 2007, which would overturn the Unlawful
Internet Gambling Enforcement Act (UIGEA) and establish a Federal
regulatory and enforcement framework to license companies to accept
bets and wagers online from individuals in the United States.
Congressman Scott is serving his eighth term for the State of
Virginia and is on record as voting against UIGEA in October when
it passed through the House of Representatives.
An influential player in Washington, Scott currently serves on
the committees for the Budget, Education and Labor and the
Judiciary along with the Constitution, Civil Rights and Civil
Liberties sub-committee. He is also a member of the Crime,
Terrorism and Homeland Security sub-committee.
Scott’s support now brings the list of supporters for the Bill
to 36 with 218 votes needed for the Bill to pass through the House
In other news from Washington, Robert Wexler’s proposed Skill
Game Protection Act has gained another supporter in the House of
Representatives with the announcement that New York Democrat Eliot
Engel has agreed to co-sponsor the legislation.
The Skill Game Protection Act seeks an exemption in UIGEA for
skill games such as poker and only had one sponsor when it was
first introduced by the Florida Democrat in June.
Engel voted against the UIGEA last year and his support brings
the total number of members co-sponsoring the Bill to twelve.
