North Dakota House Passes Measure To Let Voters Weigh In On Internet Poker from USBets' Brian Pempus

North Dakota has boosted its odds of having regulated online poker sites sometime in the near future.

On Tuesday, the North Dakota House of Representatives passed House Concurrent Resolution No. 3012 by a 54-40 vote. A similar resolution for sports wagering was also approved in the House by a 70-24 vote. Under the resolutions, voters would decide on whether to allow the state constitution to be amended to allow for the gambling expansion.

Companion legislation for online poker (HB 1389) and sports betting (HB 1234) also advanced.

“There’s thousands of people in the state of North Dakota who are playing online poker. It’s not regulated. It’s not taxed. We don’t know for sure if the machines are fair or not because we don’t know anything about it,” Rep. Jim Kasper, R-Fargo, said, according to KFYR.

It’s unclear how the Senate will come down on the resolutions.
