Legislation pushed to legalize and regulate online poker sites
A bipartisan group of lawmakers introduced a bill Friday that would legalize and license online poker sites, two months after the Obama administration shut down sites used by an estimated 10 million Americans.

“Poker is an all-American game, and it’s a game that requires strategy and skill. Millions of Americans play poker online,” said Rep. Joe Barton (R-Texas), who authored the bill.
