Default Poker Players Alliance Responds to Internet Gambling Bill Text

The Poker Players Alliance requests more information on the description of "summary text", in the proposed 2012 Internet Gambling Bill, and would like to see it changed, according to Poker News dot com.

Here's what Poker News mentions...

John Pappas, executive director of the PPA, said the organization has reached out to the offices of the bill's authors, Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev.) and Sen. Jon Kyl (R-Ari.), to express these concerns. Many of the issues are based on the vagueness to the wording of the summary text. Pappas indicated that the PPA's main objective is to get a hold of the draft bill in order to see how the actual language might affect these concerns.
And this is why Pappas is so concerned about the summary text in the Gambling bill...

The summary text states that "no licensee or other U.S. person may accept bets or wagers from persons located in other countries." It's likely that licensed and regulated online poker in the U.S. would begin within the country's borders, but Pappas doesn't want to see language in the bill that would close the door on expanding to an international market.
Read the full story at Poker News.

I agree with Pappas on this one...
If the U.S. gambling bill says to allow gambling to players only inside the borders, they are missing out on thousands of International players and untold millions in revenue.

What the heck are they thinking about? They should know by now that "more is better".
