Citizens of PA right next to us are free to play poker online, while we are forced to drive out of state to enjoy the same freedom. New Yorkers should be able to enjoy online poker from the comfort of our own state and home, there is no reason it should be banned. Not only would this give our citizens increased freedom to enjoy their favorite table games, it would also bring in a large amount of tax revenue. If our state does not accept the tax revenue, PA will do it for us. Even if someone is morally against gambling, why should their puritanical views chain the rest of us? Marijuana is now legal, poker at a casino is legal, and online poker should also be legal. Thank you for your consideration.
