Let's Make Online Poker Legal in all 50 States
Hello all, I am sick and tired of not being able to play online for cash. I have sent e-mails to both Senators in Florida. They answered and said it was a state issue. Since then I have been writing an e-mail each month to my state senator and representative. I have been doing this for 3 months. I have only received the standard form letter/e-mail back. I am going to send the monthly e-mail for 3 more months and then if I don't get a response, I will start writing it once a week and calling every month. I am asking you to take 5 minutes, find your state reps. https://openstates.org/find_your_legislator/ and send the 2 that represent you an e-mail asking them to make online poker legal in your state. If you live in one of the four that have already made it legal, be grateful. I believe if New York, California and Florida make it legal all of the states will follow. I have sent an e-mail to Jonathan Little, Alex Fitzgerald, and James Sweeney. Jonathan answered right away. I asked them and I'll ask here if there are pros that read this. Please start talking about this. It is unreal that we cannot play online. Pennsylvania just made it legal, Michigan is up next. https://www.onlinepokerreport.com/us/pa/ If you read that article, New Jersey is expected to bring in 400 million in tax receipts over the next 5 years. This is a great sales line to any state representative. Every state is looking for income. I will be cross posting this to other forums, if anyone has any ideas on how to get this done, please let me know. I signed up for poker players alliance right after black Friday, After a couple years I stopped following because I lived in New York and it seemed hopeless. They are still around, it just doesn't seem like they are making progress. I don't know what happened to them. Doing some searches, I see pictures of Annie Duke and Howard Lederer, thinking the full tilt fiasco diminished PPA. If anyone knows of another org. that is lobbying to make it legal, or has other ideas on how to get this done, let me know. I am ready, willing and able to help make this a reality.
