Online Gambling Legislation Introduced in Michigan
Finally in our gambling news this week, the state of Michigan in the US is aiming once more to bring online gambling legislation to the governor’s desk, with the introduction of the Lawful Internet Gaming Act.
State Senator Mike Kowall introduced the bill, with the intention of licensing state brick and mortar casinos that will allow them to offer online casino games.
Poker will be one of the games, as well as the option to introduce others. There doesn’t seem to be a cap on the number of casinos that would be able to hold a license. If the bill becomes law, the process needs to be completed within a year.
It is hoped that a hearing by the Senate Regulatory Reform Committee will be held this week.
