Massachusetts Online Gambling Bill Fails Again

This story was published more than 10 years ago.

The latest attempt to legalize online gambling in the state of Massachusetts has ended in failure yet again after the measure was defeated in the State Senate.

The bill was officially known as S.1826 and was introduced by Senate Minority Leader Bruce Tarr. The bill was packed in as a financial measure ad would have taxed operators at 20% of their revenues and would have licensed only established land casinos for online operations.

The failure is the latest in a long string of attempts to legalize the hobby in the Bay State. All other attempts have similarly failed, and it is unknown whether or not the future prospects will be any brighter.
