Rep. Barney Frank is my new hero. He’s at least started the conversation to repeal the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act of 2006.
Let’s do our part by writing to our elected officials expressing our desire to have this law repealed.
1) Find your representative — enter your zip in the top left corner.
2) Send him or her an email — see below.
3) Find your senators — select your state in the top right corner.
4) Send them the email as well.
Here is the email that you can send (credit to Hal Coblentz for the text of this email):
I am writing to express my opinion that the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act of 2006 should be repealed. I strongly believe our government should not prohibit adults from enjoying an American pastime in the comfort of our homes. I am in favor of legalization, regulation and taxation of the internet gaming industry by the U.S. Government.
