TELL CONGRESS IT’S TIME FOR FAIR PLAY. The status quo is unacceptable. Americans who want to play gamble online deserve a strictly regulated, safe industry here in the United States. Parents must be assured their children cannot gamble online. American consumers must be protected.
The 50-year old federal Wire Act needs to be modernized, and U.S. law enforcement needs the most effective tools necessary to shut down operators who are engaging in illegal activities. In essence, we have a “wild west” atmosphere with no U.S. regulation – nothing to prevent minors from gambling and no consumer protections.
It’s time for Congress to address the problems associated with offshore Internet gambling and give law enforcement the tools to crack down on illegal sites that offer all forms of gambling. And it’s time for Congress to ensure the integrity and safety of online gambling in the USA.
