Rep. Titus of Nevada Calls for Trump Team Not to Ban Online Gambling

Ten Republican Attorneys General have written a letter to soon to be Vice-President Mike Pence calling for the Trump team to put an all-out federal ban on online gambling in place.Nevada representative Dina Titus has responded with a letter of her own to Mike Pence and President-Elect Trump, stating the reasons why she feels that this ban should not occur.A letter that was (perhaps unsurprisingly) lauded by supports of online gambling, Rep. Titus’ letter is particular important because Republican Adam Laxalt, who is a Nevada Attorney General, was one of the first to sign the letter calling for the ban. 

About the letter

 Rep. Titus challenged a number of claims made in the original letter to Mike Pence, claiming that the letter contained “several inaccuracies and unfair allegations.”  Some of the sections that Rep. Titus sought to correct in her letter included: 

  • Pointing out the difference between legal online gambling (which is currently allowed in Nevada, New Jersey, and Delaware), and illegal online gambling, which takes place in an unregulated market and leaves consumers unprotected.
  • Stating that regulated online casinos actually prevent underage gambling, whereas unregulated casinos cannot.
  • Claiming that banning online gambling at a federal level is a clear violation of states’ rights.

If the original letter to Mike Pence did contain inaccuracies, then Rep’ Titus was within her rights, and arguably even obligated to point out these inaccuracies for the sake of a truly informed decision on the matter.

What’s next?

 It is unlikely that we have heard the last of Rep’ Titus on this issue, she has been a long-time advocate of online gambling, but for now, there is a brief respite and the battle will continue in 2017.
