Barney Frank's Online Gambling Legislation Looking Good Says Iowa Lottery

Sure, there are plenty of skeptics who don't think Congressman Barney Frank's legislation to regulate online gambling will not pass. And rightly so. Let's face it - there is still a great deal of still opposition to online gambling from special interest groups and the religious right. Yet, amidst the doubt and uphill battle, there are some who believe Barney Frank and the countless supporters of online gambling regulation are going to get it done. One of these is none other than the State of Iowa. Now, me personally, I just thought there was a lot of potatoes in Iowa. But apparently, online gambling and potatoes go hand-in-hand. The Iowa Lottery especially thinks that online gambling regulation stands a good chance now that a more liberal Congress is at the wheel and the economy is still in dire help. Sounds like a breath of fresh air, doesn't it? The only thing is that instead of prepping to open the market and develop guidelines for regulating online casinos, Iowa is thinking about ways to protect it's land-based gambling interests. Or rather, I should say the head of the Iowa Lottery, Terry Rich, is thinking about this. It looks like Rich is even breaking a sweat and soiling his pants, going so far to write a letter to the Iowa State Board urging them to implement measures that would protect the Iowa lottery from competition online. Now, to be fair to Rich, he is one record saying this about not taking any action at all, and that the State should at least decide to do something, whether it be illegalize online casinos or create tax legislation that could go into effect if and when online gambling is legalized. And, according to Rick, based on what he's been seeing, it's very likely to happen. Now, as for the Iowa Racing and Gambling Commission, which controls some seventeen casinos in the State, they are neutral to the idea of online gambling. In other words, they have probably already got a plan up their sleeve to dominate the online gambling sector within State borders. According to Frank's bill, that is indeed what would happen. Individual State's would have the power to either regulate or ban online gambling. Whether or not there are provisions for prohibiting protectionism is not yet known. While online gambling regulation sounds like a great idea, depending on how it all goes down, could end up being a huge burden for the folks who are currently helping the industry thrive without the big names like Harrah's.
