Coalition Wants Laws for Online Poker Games

A new coalition launched with the goal of persuading lawmakers to set up a regulatory regime that would allow Americans to legally place bets on online poker games. The FairPlayUSA coalition has attracted some high-profile advisers including former Homeland Security and ex-Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Ridge, R-Pa., to push Congress to fully legalize online poker and to clarify the nation's online gambling laws to more clearly define what is legal and what is not.
