Paid Online Poker in NJ state- the proposed bill is under revision reqst from Chris Christy (last month), and scheduled for review/vote in next state session Q2 for approval... At the Fed level - Intrastate Poker will happen because Indian Reservations won't be successful in preventing online poker because Poker only represents 1% of their total rev. so its not putting them at a disadvantage. SO ZOOOOOOOOOOM, ZOOOOOOOOOM very SOOOOON..
It sounds to me what they want to do, since there was a ruling that in-state gambling is OK, that they can skirt around the federal law this way. Probably similar to the way you don't have to pay sales tax when you buy something from amazon.com.
