US National Governors Opposes Ban on Online Gambling

US National Governors Opposes Ban on Online Gambling The US National Governors Association has made its opposition to the Graham-Chaffetz bills to ban online gambling apparent.

The Association presented the House and Senate leaders with a letter on Monday:

"The nation's governors are concerned with legislation introduced in Congress that would ban online Internet gaming and Internet lottery sales because it challenges the federal-state relationship.

"The regulation of gaming is an issue that has historically been addressed by the states.

"Regardless of whether governors are in favor of offering gaming - through whatever form - within their own states, decisions at the federal level that affect state regulatory authority should not be made unilaterally without state input.

"A strong, cooperative relationship between the states and federal government is vital to best serve the interests of all citizens."

The letter in its entirety is available here:
  • I think that the National Governors Association is a big strong voice that supports all US citizens. They meet twice a year and send their recommendations to Washington. This is a very good sign that Governors across the country are sending strong support for the passage of online gambling legislation even if it is just to say that it is left entirely up to each individual state.
