WASHINGTON - The D.C. councilmember who pushed for online gambling says he plans to offer a compromise bill to avoid a complete repeal of the program.
Councilmember Michael Brown tells The Washington Times that he doesn't think the council should throw out a law that he says will bring in at least $150 million over the next 10 to 15 years ( http://bit.ly/xXUg3Q). Brown plans to introduce the bill on Tuesday.
The Finance and Revenue Committee voted last week to send the repeal bill to the full council. A majority of councilmembers have said they support repealing the nation's first government-sponsored online gambling program. The law is on the books but has not been implemented.
