Nevada Congresswoman Dina Titus recently took the step of writing Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to advocate for preservation of current Department of Justice guidelines indicating that the Federal Wires Act of 1961 gives states the right to decide in the legality of online gambling.

  • More and more officials are making moves in order to try and get legalized movements on online betting reversed.
