Titus Calls On Trump To Oppose Online Gaming Ban

Nevada Representative Dina Titus is urging the President-Elect to oppose a call for an online gambling ban.

The democratic congresswoman sent a letter to Vice President-Elect Mike Pence, the head of Trump’s transition team, this week.

Her letter was in response to a letter signed last month by 10 Attorneys General who opposed online gaming. The Republican AG’s sent the letter to Pence asking him to consider the Restoration of America’s Wire Act.

Nevada’s Attorney General, Adam Laxalt, was a cosigner of the letter. The Restoration of America’s Wire Act is legislation that would effectively ban all online gambling nationwide with the exception of daily fantasy sports websites and horse race betting.
