Brazil delays the reform of gambling

22 Dec 2016

BrazilAs it seems, while the will to regulate properly the gambling sector in Brazil is strong, there are second thoughts on the way this should be processed. The Bill PLS 186/2014 was sent back to the Parliament and to the House Committee on Constitution, Justice and Citizenship for further discuss and research, since there are some points that need to be reviewed in order for the bill to be more accurate and complete. In the early stages of November the Special Committee for National Development (CEDN) approved a modified and updated version of legislation for gambling, but this will be delayed now, since there will be a further analysis at the Senate A number of lawmakers were unhappy with the delay, since they believe that it is time a new legislation is approved by the government. After all, they have been waiting for something like this for 25 years now.

Official sources from the side of the lawmakers, said: «This is not the time to say that we will not discuss it or that we need to discuss it further. That has passed. We need to decide now. There has been a monumental delay in making a decision on this».
