Do you think all Republicans support U.S. Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist in the question of banning Internet gambling? Jim Kasper, North Dakota State Rep., does not, and calls the proposal ridiculous. He tells: “The people of our nation want to do what they want to do in the privacy of their living rooms… People don’t want the Internet police in their living rooms”.
What Jim Kasper plans is to introduce bills that will make Internet gambling legal in North Dakota. It means that online casinos will bring their software, hardware and employees to the region. In Accordance with Kasper’s proposal age-verification protection will be provided by software mandates, and casino operators will pay taxes used to reduce property taxes – taxes on gross revenues.
This is actually the second time for Kasper to pass the bill. But in any case he is not going to give up.
