Internet Gambling Needs Regulation, Time to Call Congress, Again

The next step of Casino Gambling Web’s ‘IGREA Initiative’ will be calling all of the representatives in the House Financial Services Committee. The first step of the site’s campaign started with the delivery of 435 informational packages to every congress person in the House.

Of the 37 Democratic members serving on the House Financial Services Committee, only 11 have signed on to co-sponsor Chairman Barney Frank’s Bill H.R. 2046, which aims to create an exception to the UIGEA that would allow the legalization and regulation of online gambling.

“We urge all Americans who would like to see Internet gambling legalized call these members of the Financial Services Committee and express your support for ‘The IGREA Initiative’,” said Gordon Price of Casino Gambling Web.

The site’s cause may have been helped yesterday with the release of the first UK Gambling Prevalence Study done in 8 years. The results showed problem gambling to be dramatically lower than expected.

“Let the congress person you call know about the results of this UK study, as well as the Harvard study that found a 0.4% incidence of problem gambling amongst the gambling public,” Price said.

Price suggested callers ask for an aid responsible for Bill HR 2046 and leave a message for them about the issue if they do not answer.

Below is a list of all Democratic Congress people on the Financial Services Committee who have yet to sign on to co-sponsor Barney Frank’s bill.
