Poker Players Alliance Asking for Signatures and Support

Share this
This message was received on December 6th, 2010 in an email from the Poker Players Alliance.  It is posted here on PokerWorks to bring the news to all United States poker players that we need support to make online poker a reality without a threat from the government and the indignation of certain groups that feel poker leads to gambling addictions and as law abiding adults we need laws to protect us from our own ability to decide what is best for us.  We need regulation, taxation, legalization, and security for online poker.  The link to send an email now is for the state of Nevada, please correct the link to correlate with your state.  But please, please send the email. 

You have likely heard news reports that the U.S. Congress is considering legislation to regulate Internet poker and that this bill could be brought up during the “lame duck” session happening now.  The Poker Players Alliance has been fully engaged in this process.  We are currently working very hard to ensure that the final bill is something the poker community can embrace, but it won’t be easy.  We have our detractors and even other gaming interests do not fully appreciate the current marketplace, nor do they respect the ability of Americans to continue playing online unless they control the system. 


Be assured, Congressional advocates for regulated Internet poker do not share those views.  They believe in a robust and competitive marketplace with strong consumer protections that will, in the long-term, provide an even greater experience for the poker player than today. 


It is because of this support that the PPA is urging our members to act TODAY. We ask that you contact your U.S. Senators and urge them to support legislation that licenses and regulates Internet poker.


Simply click here to send an email right now.


Thank you for taking this action today.  It is critically important that we voice our support to get this done this year!  As more details about the bill are available, we will continue to update you.


Proud to Play,


Senator Alfonse D’Amato

PPA Chairman
