A Closer Look at Virgin Islands Legislation

25 April 2001
Last week IGN reported on a bill that would bring Internet gambling to the U.S. Virgin Islands. Legislators there debated long and hard over Bill No. 24-0046, before deciding that a few changes were needed. Arguments over suggested changes to the bill will be heard May 7 when the Senate Committee for Economic Development, Agriculture and Consumer Protection reconvenes. Changes will likely include work on the regulatory structure, taxation issues and the issuance of a "Master Franchiser" license.
