PPA Throws Weight Behind Wexler Act
By staff
The Poker Players Alliance (PPA), a grassroots advocacy group of nearly 550,000 members, has enthusiastically thrown its support behind American Congressman Robert Wexler’s Skill Game Protection Act legislation.

The proposed Act from the Florida Democrat would make 'skill' games such as poker, mah-jongg, bridge and chess exempt from current laws aimed at stopping online gambling in America.

“Congressman Wexler’s bill is a positive development for the millions of American poker players who enjoy one of our nation’s great pastimes,” said Senator Alfonse D’Amato, PPA Chairman of the Board.

“Poker and other games of skill have fallen victim to bad public policy. Wexler’s plan will give skill games the rightful protection they deserve and it will require the proper safeguards to protect children and those prone to abuse.”
