Mississippi Online Gaming Bill Dead After Less Than A Month On The Table
Proposal Goes Nowhere For Second Straight Year For One Lawmaker
A bill in Mississippi that would have legalized online poker has hit the muck after just three weeks and change. The bill was introduced on Jan. 14 and died in committee Tuesday.
The fate of the legislation is not all that surprising, as Rep. Bobby Moak, author of the proposal, told Card Player on Jan. 25 that there was little hope for it in 2013.
Moak had also tried to legalize online gaming in 2012.
Mississippi, home to 30 commercial casinos, is one of the nation’s top gaming markets.
