The Safe and Secure Internet Gambling Initiative

The Safe and Secure Internet Gambling Initiative is taking on the issue of federal regulations for online gambling.

With individual states passing their own legislation to legalize online gambling within state borders, more and more people are calling for federal regulations for internet gambling. The Safe and Secure Internet Gambling Initiative is the official organization for promoting federal legislation across America, and its website keeps interested parties up-to-date on the latest news in U.S. online gambling regulations.

According to the Safe and Secure website, their mission is to promote "the freedom of individuals to gamble online with the proper safeguards to protect consumers and ensure the integrity of financial transactions." As a means for promoting the freedom for individuals to gamble online, the Initiative addresses six key issues: Protecting children, compulsive gambling safeguards, secure financial transactions, new government revenues, a regulated and licensed environment and international ramifications.

The Initiative provides information about all of these issues, and elaborates on how the federal government could learn from its international friends about how to protect children, how to set up identity verification, how to erect safeguards for those suffering from compulsive gambling and how to ensure secure financial transactions.

Revenue, the Initiative says, can be a wonderful result of federal legislation to legalize online gambling. Moreover, it could be just what the United States needs to bolster its economy.

In addition to information, the Safe and Secure Internet Gambling Initiative provides opportunities to engage American elected officials on the issue of internet gambling.
