I am writing in support of House Bill 1243, "Providing an affirmative defense to unlawful internet gambling if the defendant committed the offense in his or her primary residence." Please schedule a hearing for this bill.
I am a lifelong resident of Lakewood, and believe it is incongruent of the state of Washington to have made online poker a class C felony, while still permitting home poker games, licensing local casinos, and advocating the state's sale of lottery tickets.
