Pennsylvania Online Gambling New Bill Hearing

April 10, 2015

Pennsylvania has received the third bill of the year. The online gambling industry is struggling due to the lack of knowledge of bureaucracy. The economy of the state could be rescued from the bad shape is in already, with just setting up the terms for the online gaming industry to operate within legal directives. Pennsylvania State Representative and Legislator, Tina Davis (D-Bucks County), becomes this way the third political dignitary that tries to introduce some common sense into Pennsylvania legislation. The third online poker bill introduced in Pennsylvania this year is trying to expand and secure the online gambling, for once and for all.

The new House Bill 920 presents same characteristics as 2013’s bill that Davis also tried to introduce. Both bills, Representative John Payne’s and Tina’s, are the only tools the online gaming market has available, so it is going to be a hard battle to fight. House Bill HB649 is trying to decriminalize Pennsylvania’s online poker and casino operations. Representative Nick Miccarelli also went for House Bill 695. But it seems that the only one that the state might pass is Payne’s. Tina Davis bill for Pennsylvania legislature has to do more with online poker, although it would support other online gambling products like online casino games. House Bill HB920 would only work for casinos already certified within the state borders; these online operators would be allowed to offer online casino games, poker among them; the license fee has been fixed on $5 million, and for one year only. Authorized online gambling operators can extend the license for another three years, with a cost of $500,000 per each license process. Tina Davis said earlier this year: “Considering efforts across the country to legalize internet gaming, it is imperative that we maintain the integrity of our gaming industry amid inevitable federal preemption and competing states. A responsible internet gaming system must be created in order to protect Pennsylvanians and the success of the established gaming industry in the Commonwealth.”
