Congress versus gambling

16 Dec 2016

us congressThings are getting more and more dark concerning gambling in the US territory, since a Pennsylvania Congressman Michael Fitzpatrick introduced a bill that will harm a lot the online gambling stage. And this will happen because the decision that the Department of Justice took in 2011 may be cancelled, since it is a decision that does not carry the full weight of the law, according to Mr Fitzpatrick. Efforts to shut down the online gambling industry it is very probable to be more powerful with the instalment of the new government.

Though Donald Trump was a casino owner, Vice-President elect Mike Pence is an apparent critic of land-based and online gambling. US-facing online gambling industry will require a US Congress that’s functional enough to actually pass a bill into law and that is not happening for now, but many things may change during the first months in 2017. Of course there is scepticism concerning where this pressure will lead the industry, but everything will be much more clearer in the next few months.
