    Michigan Shooting For Regulated Internet Gaming

    SOURCE


    Internet gambling would be regulated under bills recently voted out of a state House committee.

    The legislation would let casinos and tribal casinos get licenses from a state agency for online gaming.
    The casinos could then use approved software that does things like determine user age and look for addictive behaviors.

    “You get on the internet today, you type in Michigan internet gaming and sites pop up," said state Rep. Brandt Iden, R-Portage.
    "And we need to make sure we have the proper consumer protections in place to make sure that people are protected. That’s what we’re here to do.”

    Critics of the legislation say it would pull revenue away from the state lottery.
    They say that would put a dent in the state’s School Aid Fund, which the lottery helps support.

    State Rep. Jeremy Moss, D-Southfield, helped craft amendments to bring Democrats on board.
    One priority for him is to have money set aside to help problem gamblers.

    “Those are the 800 numbers and the other resources that people need if they do have an addiction and cannot stop and are really getting to a point where it’s impacting their day to day lives,” he said.
