U.S. Representative Joe Barton – Online Poker’s New Hope?

Since April 15th, most of the news that has come out about online poker has been negative. With the Department of Justice effectively unilaterally blocking Americans from playing poker online, pent up demand for legalized online poker in the U.S. makes it only a matter of time before it becomes legalized and regulated. While a number of attempts have been made to enact laws on the state level, a new bill to legalize online poker on the federal level has just been introduced to the House of Representatives by U.S. Rep. Joe Barton of Texas.
