A bill is to be introduced with the aim of legalising internet gambling in the state of Pennsylvania.
State Senator Jay Costa (above) is the latest politician to try and sell the Quaker State on online gambling.
Pennsylvania has considered the merits of online wagering in each of the past four years.
With 2016’s HB2150 eventually shot down by the State House of Representatives, Costa has now announced that he will use said bill as the basis for his own legislation which he plans to introduce “in the near future”.
Senator Costa plans to allow casinos in Pennsylvania to offer online gaming services, providing they secure the necessary approval and pay a $10 million licence fee.
Costa's bill also proposes to regulate daily fantasy sports contests.
