The latest attempt to get online betting legal in the state of Massachusetts has once again been defeated by the states senate. The latest bill was called S.1826 and was crafted by Bruce Tarr, the Senate minority leader.
This bill was full of measures such as a tax of 20% against operators ad would only have allowed for those who currently operate casinos within the state to be licensed. This latest defeat is one in a long list of attempts to see online gambling legal within the state. At this time is is not known if further attempts will be brought forward.
It is situations like this why a federal bill will gain momentum. The need for a law at a federal level is one that must be made a priority in order to give people the ability to decide where and how they spend monies they wish to spend on gambling entertainment.
