Federal Online Gambling Regulations Opposed by State Lottery Directors


Jeffrey R. Anderson, director of the Idaho Lottery; Stephen Martino, director of the Maryland Lottery and Gaming Control Agency; and Charles McIntyre, executive director of the New Hampshire Lottery, have made their case for state's rights regarding online gambling.

"Because of the important role state lotteries play in investing in our communities, and our states' futures, we are concerned with the recent efforts in Congress to pass a nationwide ban on Internet gambling and lottery sales', the three senior executives wrote.

"We firmly believe that all decisions about gambling should continue to be left to each individual state. It should be at their discretion what games, if any at all, are offered and through what manner they are delivered."

"It also would be a direct assault on states' rights. Since 1964 with the founding of the first modern state lottery in New Hampshire, states have effectively, safely and responsibly operated lotteries. They have ensured transparency and promoted fair play.

"Should some states choose to employ Internet gambling or lottery sales, the same extensive safeguards and high standards would be put into place. But it's a choice that each state should have the option to make.

"Efforts by some members of Congress to substitute their judgment for those of the states on Internet gambling and lottery policy should be rejected."

    I can't believe I'm reading this bull.....the US use to be home of the free. Now it seems like if the government cant get the money or have control of it then they want to ban it. This whole greed thing and this need to have control of people and what they do does not represent AMerica at all. More and more everyday I heat something the government is going against all because they don't own it or control it or they just don't see money for them and they see how much others are making....But I'm sure the big thing is that american people are winning money and they don't have any idea who and how much ....so they can collect taxes.....If they can't have a piece of it then you can't have it....This is just bullshit. Greed and control is whats taking the US down. In God we trust....He will
