New York Senate Finance Committee advances bill to license and regulate online poker

The Poker Players Alliance (PPA), the leading poker grassroots advocacy group with 1.2 million enthusiasts nationwide and more than 40,000 advocates in New York, today applauds the New York Senate Finance Committee for passing S.5302—a bill to license and regulate internet poker in the state—and urges swift movement of the bill as it proceeds through the legislative process.

"Numerous discussions and hearings in the Assembly and the Senate have provided convincing evidence that licensing and regulating Internet poker in the state is in the best interest of consumers, and would also generate significant revenue and jobs in New York," said John Pappas, executive director of the PPA. "The New York legislature should move quickly to pass online poker legislation with strong consumer protections into law this year."

The New York legislature is also considering the regulation of Daily Fantasy Sports (DFS), but the PPA is urging lawmakers not to prioritize the protection of DFS players over internet poker players.
