Barney Frank Introduces Bill to Legalize Online Gambling

U.S. House Financial Services Committee Chairman Barney Frank (D-MA) introduced this morning the “Internet Gambling Regulation and Enforcement Act of 2007,” a bill that would effectively repeal the UIGEA by creating an exemption to the ban on online gambling for properly licensed operators, thus allowing Americans to lawfully bet online.

According to, the Financial Services Committee will hold a hearing entitled, “Can Internet gambling be regulated to protect consumers and the payments system?” at a date to be determined in June.
