A new anti-online gambling law has been approved in Pennsylvania, one of the US states that was trying to regulate the online gambling market for a long time. This new law comes along with an anti-gambling bill that intends to ban online gaming in Pennsylvania and not only for as long as possible.
The State Representative Thomas P. Murt is just one key person in this market, given that both Sheldon Adelson and Paul Claymer have tried to ban online gambling several times, and not just in Pennsylvania, but in other states as well
Thomas P. Murt was the main supporter and sponsor of this new law and, although it might seem that this bill is a part of a new gaming approach that will serve in the benefit of US gamblers, Rep. Murt just continued Claymer’s ideas and vision about online gambling regulation.
Despite its efforts, the state of Pennsylvania hasn’t given up the fight yet. Pennsylvania is aiming to become the 4th US state where online gambling is legalized by following the example of Nevada, Delaware and New Jersey.
Another state that has a lot of anti-online gambling bills and laws is California, a state that is also aiming to legalize online casino games. The Rep. Murt is also lobbying in favor of anti-online gambling in California, but several gaming institutions (for e.g. the House Gaming Oversight Committee) are fighting against his personal interest and in favor of a democratic approach and a liberalized gambling market
