Michigan Looks To Possibly Speed Along Passage Of Online Poker Legislation

05/21/2018

It is entirely possible that online poker could be legalized in the state of Michigan much sooner than some might have previously expected. This is because one particular lawmaker has been persistent on this issue and continues to push forward yet another pieces of legislation to try to help move along the process of online poker in Michigan. 

The lawmaker's name is Brandt Iden and his vision for his home state is to have it allowing citizens to play the poker games that they love in the privacy of their own homes online. He would also like to have Michigan move towards joining an interstate pact with other legal poker states in order to grow player pools and interest in the games. That has already happened in the states of Delaware, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Rhode Island. Hopefully others will join along soon. 

The current legislation that has been proposed by Iden is something that he hopes to pass through the State House no later than June 21st. It is his hope and desire to have this legislation at least get past that stage at that point in order to continue to rush it along towards getting a signature by the Governor. 

The urgency in doing this has only been enhanced by a ruling by the Supreme Court that has opened up the possibility for states to legalize gambling on sports within their borders. That is coming very soon, and there is optimism that states will soon start to open that up throughout their borders very soon. That could well happen in the not so distant future. 

A lot of tax dollars are at stake, and some of the first states to legalize these kinds of things may see an upswing in the amount of tax revenue that they are able to generate from gambling on sports and poker. They could see bounties of money because it may remain illegal in other parts of the country for some time. This is why now is the time for Michigan and other states to consider these pieces of legislation for what they are and what they can bring in to their states.
