Default New bill introduced in Washington State?

I did not see this posted yet?
BILL FOR LEGAL ONLINE POKER FILED IN WA STATE

Source: PokerPages.com - Thu, Jan 25th, 2007 @ 12:00am

A bill was submitted in the state of Washington last week to exclude internet gambling played from a person's home from being a felony. This also includes online poker.

Under the state's 2006 internet gambling law, any online gambling currently conducted in the state is a Class C Felony, which is the same penalty for possessing child pornography.

Washington State Rep. Chris Strow, R-Whidbey Island, introduced House Bill 1243 on Jan 15, 2007 to correct what he considers an inappropriate penalty for an activity responsible adults should be allowed to do in the privacy of their home.

"While I do see the need for protecting our citizens from online gaming that may be scamming innocent victims, I do think that there is also a level of accountability, as an adult, to do as he or she chooses in his or her own home," said Strow.

He added, "Most certainly choosing to gamble, or play a game of skill such as poker, should not have been made a crime equivalent to possessing child pornography or threatening the Governor."

Other sponsors of the bill include Representatives Kirby, Upthegrove, B. Sullivan, Simpson, and Appleton.
House Bill 1243 is currently awaiting a hearing in the House Commerce and Labor Committee.

Strow made a plea for state residents to call and write to the Chairman of the House Commerce and Labor Committee, Representative Steve Conway, to ask him to schedule a hearing for House Bill 1243.

Good for him. It is nice to finally see the cool aid crew changing their tune when they know if they keep it up they will be decimated in 2008.

I actually find it funny to watch all these idiots throw Bush under the bus. I give TA credit for his loyalty. The others look exactly like what they are...human wastes of skin.

no I think only you, Hart, Myron and a few others actually believe the republican party is composed of a bunch of bible toting self righteous hicks-

the rest of us normals know the republicans use them to balance the power vs the welfare crowd and once in a while need to cater to them to maintain their support.

the fact of the matter is a vast majority of republicans agree entirely with this:

including the part abt scam operators raping and pillaging the american public with zero recourse-

the sooner you emerge from your delusions the better your choices moving forward will be.

Last polls I saw was about 60 percent of the population think that now.

I didnt know the population of the states was only that small if we make up the 60 percent.

I really have to get out more. There must have been a nuclear hololcaust I havent read about yet. Oh ya, thats next if this fucking moron keep fucking with the rest of the world. But cool aid boy will tell us that Bill's fault.

Pelosi has been a sharp critic of the Bush administration's conduct of the war and has led a drive in Congress against sending 21,500 more troops as part of a new security crackdown in Baghdad.

In Washington on Friday, President Bush challenged skeptical lawmakers not to prematurely condemn his buildup, saying "I'm the decision-maker."
This kind of statement by Bush proves he actually is as stupid, arrogant and delusional as he appears. No you are not the decision maker, you are a fuking idiot who has "led" the US to their first losing war since Vietnam. And we have lost. We got the shitt kicked out of us in fact. And it was a meaningless war fought under false pretenses. It is time to give Dubya a reality check. Congress should cut off the funds COLD and then let's see the Decision Maker continue the war.

Voting for this idiot twice was the second and third worst mistakes of my life. Number one is still choosing Michigan State baskets -4.5 over the Golden Shower Gophers at the Barn to close out a 6 team $50,000 that ended up being the last bet I ever made offline. Fukkin bankrupted me. Was the only loss on the card.
