Portugal To Debate Online Gambling

The European country of Portugal is reportedly gearing up to debate the regulation of online betting before the country's parliament takes a recess beginning July 10th.

The revelation of the upcoming debate was made when it was announced that the country's Ministry of Economics had completed drafting the measure for debate. Two such measures had failed previously, but it appears that this first draft is ready to be unveiled.

Those with knowledge on the bill's progress claim that it will create a regulating body for the country, and closely follows the systems set up by neighboring countries. No details on tax rates, application fees, or other limitations were revealed by those commenting on the bill.
