    Default PPA Members Score Victory on HR3954 in Massachusetts!

    This just in from the Massachusetts chapter of the Poker Players Alliance:

    Thank you for your quick response to Representative Brian Wallace (D-4 Suffolk) and Martin Walsh's (D-13 Suffolk) bill HR 3954, which expanded gambling in the state but also included a provision making Internet poker illegal with up to a two years in a house of corrections and up to a $25,000 fine.

    Because of the multitude of dedicated PPA members from all over the Commonwealth that acted by calling and flooded their offices at the General Assembly, both Representatives have committed to removing the criminal Internet poker provision from the HR 3954.

    The PPA applauds both Representatives Wallace and Walsh for their swift action on this matter. It is clear that they listened to the concerns voiced by Massachusetts PPA members and acted promptly in resolving this issue.
