congress1.jpgThe Internet Gambling Regulation and Enforcement Act, a bill introduced into the House of Representatives by Rep. Barney Frank (D-MA), has added its forty-sixth cosponsor, Rep. George Miller (D-CA). The IGREA continues to attract cosponsors and is building momentum for its run through the House, where it is currently in subcommittee. The IGREA intends to remove the ban placed on online gambling from the Unlawful Internet Gambling and Enforcement Act and instead allow online gambling as long as it is licensed and regulated, and most importantly, taxed, by the federal governemnt. The UIGEA does not directly ban online gambling, instead it prohibits banks and other financial institutions from processing payments to online gambling companies.

Rep. George Miller is the ninth cosponsor from California to sign on to the bill. Miller has been a member of the House of Representatives since he was first elected in 1975 as the representative of California’s seventh congressional district and is the chairman of the House Education and Labor Committee.

The IGREA is not the only online gambling bill moving through Congress, but it was the first to be introduced following the passing of the UIGEA, which was passed simply because it was thrown at the last minute into a must-pass bill. Also going through the House is the Internet Gambling Regulation and Tax Enforcement Act, which was introduced by Rep. Jim McDermott (D-WA).
