    Skill Game Protection Act now has 11 co-sponsors

    Florida Congressman Robert Wexler's Skill Game Protection Act, which seeks to obtain a carve-out from anti-online poker laws in the United States has seen substantially increased political support since June 27, with a number of politicians signing up for his proposal as well as that for Congressman Barney Frank's Internet Gambling Regulation and Enforcement Act for the regulation and taxation of online gambling.

    Since Mississippi Democrat Bennie Thompson signed up as Wexler's first co-sponsor in June, 11 more Representatives have put their weight behind the Wexler proposal, which now lists the following:

    Gary Ackerman (D-N.Y.)
    Shelley Berkley (D-Nev.)
    Michael Capuano (D-Mass.)
    Steve Cohen (D-Tenn.)
    Alcee Hastings (D-Fla.)
    John Larson (D-Conn.)
    James Moran (D-Va.)
    Tim Ryan (D-Ohio)
    Linda Sanchez (D-Calif.)
    Edolphus Towns (D-N.Y.)
    Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.)

    In a recent and widely read interview with the publication Poker News, Wexler repeatedly emphasised how important the support of the poker playing US public was to a more liberal US government approach to the pastime of online poker.

    Wexler urged US players to contact their political representatives to protest against the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act and similar attempts to deprive them of their right to choice on a personal pastime.

    Representative Wexler is also a co-sponsor of Congressman Frank's increasingly popular proposal to regulate online gambling generally in the USA.
