UIGEA Status

So we have to ask what is the status of the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act thrown on the port security bill in 2006? Well we have to say nothing really. Barney frank is of course still pushing to remove it and go to a regulatory role with online gambling, but it doesn’t have the backing required yet. More and more congressmen / women are signing onto the idea to generate revenue but there will most likely not be any significant change.

Also the IMEGA group has filed suite against the DOJ claiming the law is too vague, and should be removed from any enforcement. This was heard in early July but no decision is expected until September.Â

Remember when we had freedoms to make our own choices? Seems like so long ago now doesn’t it?
