US Congress to Forward Law Regulations of Online Gambling on Native Lands
Proposed by John Katno and Luis Correa, the new bill will spread light on the question of online gambling on tribal territories becoming free of federal barricades.
The new bill proposes the notion of removing federal barriers on those online gambling platforms that are technically based on a Tribal land, in the event of an agreement being secured between said Tribe and the state where it resides.
The California’s 46th congressional district’s Representative – Luis Correa, explained:
“When proposing this bill, we have in mind the multiple Native Tribes all across the US, for whom the revenue from Tribal Gambling is essential, as otherwise, the people of these Tribes would simply not be able to provide their communities with the fundamental resources when it comes to healthcare and safety.”
The Congressman also highlighted the importance of affirming solid definitions for online servers by saying:
“As the gambling industry evolves, we have more and more innovative ways of accessing gaming.
More and more authorities are legalizing some form of wagering, so we find it crucial to determine the status of online gambling servers in order to prevent legal confusion.”
