    Will still require the states to pass laws allowing it.

    The one last month failed in the state senate, though this could influence that and I know a lot was pending this ruling: http://www.theadvocate.com/baton_rou...c1bcba8e5.html

    Honestly, if the state is against more brick and mortar betting places, just pass the law regulating online betting. That would be good enough for most.

    I'm thinking in this climate, it will pass in Louisiana. We are in desperate need of any new revenue stream, and expanded "gaming" is being debated right now. I expect all of this to make an appearance during the special session.

    I have no problem with "gaming", and actually enjoy doing so from time-to-time. Legalizing on-line betting seems to be a no brainer. However, the fact that our state government and legislators may want to use this money as a way to balance the state budget shows just how incompetent they are at running the state. The state should be able to utilize this type of money for non-recurring expenses to enhance life in Louisiana, not to meet basic needs they are supposed to be budgeting for by utilizing existing funds!
