State politician to introduce bill opting out of any legalisation
Whilst many states are currently studying the opportunities in online gambling presented by the DoJ's changed position on the pastime (see previous reports), Utah is unlikely to be among them.
This week Republican Congressman and member of the Utah House of Representatives, Stephen Sandstrom, gave an unequivocal commitment that he would oppose any legalisation moves at either state or federal level in Utah, and indicated that he was drafting a bill to actively prohibit internet gambling in the state and opt out of any federal legalisation of online poker or gambling.
Sandstrom's proposed legislation would amend House Bill 104, also known as the Alcoholic Beverage Licensees and Gambling-Like Activities, to strengthen its provisions and specifically include internet gambling. Sandstrom has a successful history with 104, which he was instrumental in driving through the state House in 2007.
"We want to keep Utah free from the negative impacts of legalised gambling,' said Sandstrom this week." The US Department of Justice's conveniently issued legal opinion is a desperate attempt to try and fix today's recessive economy, [and] it's clear that President Obama's fiscal policies have been a complete failure. This latest move by the Department of Justice will only serve to harm all Americans economically and socially in the long-run."
