Weekly Update from Rich Muny, VP of Player Relations

Weekly Update from Rich Muny, VP of Player Relations I have terrific news to share with you. Following a major fight on Capitol Hill, the last “must pass” bill moved forward without Sheldon Adelson’s online poker ban attached! Chances of Adelson succeeding in the lame duck had been estimated to be as high as 50/50 by former Congressman Jon Porter (R-NV), so it is clear the poker community won a major battle for our game this week.

I wish to thank you and everyone who stood strong and refused to allow Sheldon Adelson and his cronies to usurp our rights.

That being said, a victory lap is premature. After all, the lame duck session is not quite over. We all still need to remain vigilant while continuing to let our lawmakers know that we oppose this bill and that we are paying attention. And, as 2015 will see a tenacious fight at the state and federal levels for our game, the action we all take now will help lay the foundation for next year.

Take Action

Please take a moment to send Capitol Hill leadership and House Liberty Caucus Chairman Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) prefilled, fully editable pro-poker tweets. Simply click the names below: If you don’t use Twitter, please consider creating an account for actions such as this. Like Facebook, it’s a terrific tool that we can leverage greatly in our fight. If you prefer not to, please take this opportunity to phone both of your senators and your congressman to tell them to support poker. It’s easy with this phone number lookup tool and script to help guide your calls. Thanks!
