Hi Guys, Scott here, I am writing this to inform you all that I now support Bill HR.2267, the bill which is designed to allow online poker to be regulated, legalized, and incorporated in the USA. The reason we have changed our position on this bill is because the following amendments to the bill where introduced and agreed upon in committee;

Amendment .. sites who have intentionally broken B&M or Internet gaming laws can not get a license.
The following Amendment is what has got us onboard at Makepokerlegal.com;
