    Default WSJ: States making play for legal online gambling

    All the news about states looking to legalize online gambling? Join the club. Thankfully for us, The Wall Street Journal has published a piece on what states are leading the charge and why they are looking towards online gambling as a way to help balance budgets.

    From the WSJ:

    Regardless of Mr. Christie's decision, gambling experts say momentum is growing behind states' efforts to legalize online gambling for their own residents, known as intrastate gambling. Last week, Iowa lawmakers introduced a bill to legalize online poker, and California and Florida are among other states considering similar bills.

    Once one state passes an online-gambling law, "you will see other states go 'aha.' It will spread very rapidly," said Anthony Cabot, an expert in Internet gambling law.

    The debates over online gambling come as states scramble to balance their budgets in the face of yawning deficits.

    If New Jersey fails today. I do hope another state steps up and does not get intimidated by the Federal Government.

    Iowa clears the first hurdle towards legalized online poker, story here -http://www.radioiowa.com/2011/03/01/bill-would-legalize-online-poker/

    I think this a good sign. But like EugeneK, let's keep out finger crossed.

    It's a good news that there are still lots of states that work hard just to make online gambling legal. And to be able to attain that legalization, we should support every positive actions toward online gambling.

    Countries or cities will not stop unless they become the first to have legalized gambling. Work for it! NJ may have failed but still its not an excuse to back off!.
