Nevada needs to keep the Federal Government out of its business. The state’s legalization of gambling in March of 1931 helped transformed Nevada into a major tourist destination during the Great Depression.
But to many that’s ancient history. And jus’ last week I reported:
“Governor Brian Sandoval is backing efforts for a federal law to regulate online poker, saying Internet gambling goes beyond what individual states can regulate, which is a split from the National Governors Association. Sandoval said the legislation is worth considering as Nevada would stand to gain if Internet poker is legalized.”
There is no need to involve the Federal Government and it’s over-use of regulations in Nevada’s quest to become the center of online gaming around the world. It’s obvious that Sandoval, a former federal Judge, Attorney General, and Gaming Commission Chairman and state legislator doesn’t understand or even grasp the concept of the 10th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.
Give free enterprise an opportunity to succeed.
