The Iowa Lottery is urging Congress to reject proposals to authorize federal regulation of Internet gambling.
Lottery CEO Terry Rich recently traveled to Washington, D.C. to lobby on the issue with the North American Association of State and Provincial Lotteries. Rich detailed his efforts in a report to members of the Iowa Legislature’s Government Oversight Committee.
Rich says the lotteries emphasized that the federal government should not infringe on states’ rights to implement and regulate internet gaming.
What do you think? Should the federal government regulate Internet gambling instead of states?
