American Gaming Association Chairman, Frank Fahrenkopf, injected a dose of optimism into the poker community when he claimed federal poker might be back on the political agenda.
During an interview Fahrenkopf hinted that a federal bill advocating the legislation of online poker could reach Capitol Hill within the next few weeks.
While he refrained from going into specific detail, he said that the recent flurry of state regulation by has prompted new momentum for the cause.
While it's only been two months since Senator Harry Reid's attempt failed, it's believed that Congressman Joe Barton will "probably" be the one to take up the challenge.

Governor Brian Sandoval signed Nevada's Bill AB114.
The bill will allow the state to put online poker provisions into place without federal regulation. While the bill opens up Nevada to a host of poker companies, one site in particular will have to wait before they can join the party.
Thanks to a "bad actor" clause, any poker site that operated in the US after UIGEA will not be allowed operate within the state for five years; something which will directly affect PokerStars.

Its to bad Americans can't play on the sites like other countries, that just means more money for the local casinos in the states I guess. I'm Canadian I really hope it doesn't affect us in the future somehow. I miss playing with the American's and there willingness to go all-in on pocket 8's at a cash table. Shock

New Jersey has signed a bill that will usher online poker into the state.
Governor Chris Christie completed his review of the amended bill before signing it
While the bill doesn't mention online poker, it does give state authorities the ability to authorise games that are deemed in the public interest and suitable for casino use.
Of all the changes made to the bill, the decision to increase operator tax from 10% to 15% is one that likely helped sway Christie's decision.
Following a recent spate of legislation, a handful of US states are racing to see who can launch the first regulated poker room.

New York City is considering online poker regulation following recent budget proposals by the Senate.

Needing ways to bridge its financial deficit, the state has admitted that online poker could provide a much needed cash injection.

In amongst a selection of other moneymaking initiatives, Senate co-leaders Jeff Klein and Dean Skelos drew upon the recent New York court ruling that poker is a "game of skill".
They then expanded on this point, stating:

"The Senate supports authorizing and regulating internet gaming for games of skill, including poker, to reflect recent changes in the classification of these games."

Although preliminary, such talks are certainly another positive step for online poker's overall position within the US.

Despite "gambling by computer" being illegal since 1997, the state of Louisiana is considering the legalisation of online poke
Having witnessed the regulation of online poker by states such as Nevada and New Jersey, Louisiana has put together a committee to assess the benefits of legalising the game.
According to Rep. Mike Huval, gaming has generated $14.3 billion in revenue for the state in the last 23 years and Louisiana could "benefit economically by legalising internet gaming".
While regulation looks to be some way off, Louisiana is currently one of the largest states considering online poker and could bring thousands of new players into to the game's ecosystem.

You'd think in the land of 'ultimate personal freedom' that the state wouldn't interfere in where folks decide to spend their gambling dollars.... Gambling is legal in so many ways,...lotteries, bingos, etc... but not online gambling....???

...makes no sense. Confused

I think sooner or later all US players will be able once again to play online...

As we can all imagine the commercial interests are huge since the market is that big.

My whole take on this is when the Federal Government steps in to control the states decisions on some things. One of course is on-line poker or gambling and another is the legalization of mariuana. Although I don't use it any longer due to job requirements this would be a way to propose a taxation on a lrage worldly commodity. As with on-line gambling. Even if they'd tax U.S. players on large winnings. I mean that's how it works with the lotteries, winnings from casinos and as for the mariuana market well; there's gas, cigs and booze which the governement makes a killing on.

As for going allin with pocket 8's well that's considered a great hand in my book I'm allin with pocket 2's and 3's. LOL

The Governor of Illinois, Pat Quinn, has taken a cautionary stance against online poker
Despite conceding to his senate committee's proposal for an expansion of gambling provisions, Quinn has since stated that online poker could be excluded from the bill.
The reason for his uncertainty is that "it's a brand new idea" and that such things "shouldn't be thrown into a bill at the last minute".
Corruption is one of the major issues Quinn believes could present a problem if online poker is legalised in the state.
Illinois is larger than Nevada, Delaware and New Jersey (all of which have approved online poker) combined and if they veto online poker it could be a blow for the overall US market.
