Nevada Rep Requests That Online Gambling Stay Legal

Nevada Rep. Dina Titus has written to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein requesting that he not reverse a 2011 ruling by the Obama administration that online gambling within states did not violate the Wire Act.

Rosenstein's previous office in Baltimore had been instrumental in cracking down on a number of Internet gambling sites over the past decade.

In recent years, Nevada, New Jersey, Delaware and Pennsylvania have all legalized the activity.  Titus fears the Justice Department might reverse the ruling despite no indications the Trump administration is considering such a move.

“In Las Vegas, we have seen that a regulated market is always better than an illegal one,” Titus wrote in her letter to Rosenstein. “Internet gambling will not go away with a reversal of Wire Act guidance; it will merely push more consumers into black markets.”

Trump, who used to own a casino in Atlantic City, said he has friends on both sides of the issue.

New Jersey appears to have benefitted the most from legalized online casinos and poker with the industry helping Atlantic City’s seven casinos recover from a three-year period in which five of the city's 12 casinos closed, the AP reported.
