North Dakota Legislator Throws In Towel On Licensing Campaign

Law, 2006-10-27, by TwoGun

North Dakota State Representative Jim Kasper (R-Fargo) was previously working to pass a bill that would allow online poker to be licensed in North Dakota. The politician is now giving up his effort. Since President Bush's signing of the UIGEA, Kasper's bill may now be considered illegal under federal law. His idea was to use the Bank of North Dakota to process online gambling-related transactions. State Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem notes that "you can't use the Bank of North Dakota for that purpose under the federal law."
