The ongoing saga that is the District of Columbia online gambling bill shows no signs of being resolved anytime soon. The District remains divided on whether the website for legal online gambling should be launched. D.C. Lottery officials said in a hearing on Thursday that the website could be live and running within 30 days.

From CBS News:

But Councilmember Jack Evans, who chairs the committee that's considering a bill to repeal the law, said he's not concerned if there's a delay in rolling out online gambling, or even if D.C. is the first in the nation to do so.

"Given where we are now, should we go back and revisit it or not? That's what I'll decide," said Evans, a Ward 2 Democrat. "There's no rush to get this done."

The repeal bill was introduced last year by Councilmember Tommy Wells, D-Ward 6, and at least two of the 12 other councilmembers support it. The councilmembers who want to repeal online gambling also are concerned about the district's $39 million contract with Intralot, its Greece-based lottery vendor.
