Mexico: Report of the new bill about online gambling vote for 2015
Last September, the former president of the Mexican Gaming Commission, Fernando Zarate Salgado, announced that a new draft law on gambling and online poker in Mexico has been finalized in order to be submitted at the House of Representatives. This was done, because the bill was adopted by the Lower House last week and it waits for the approbation of the Senate for its implementation. But its approval by the Senate could take longer than expected according to the announcement made by its president Luis Miguel Barbosa. Indeed, recently the President of the Senate of Mexico announced that the online gambling draft laws voting in the country could be delayed until 2015 while it had to be done during the current session, which will close on December 15.
The delay in the approval of this draft law could come from the president Luis Miguel Barbosa himself because of the presence of many bills and controversial constitutional amendments; some are from the President Enrique Peña Nieto, which are pending. But this delay is a boon for the main actors of gambling in Mexico to discuss about the bill and especially the tax that it will impose, without forgetting to mention the responsibility of the government in the establishment of a market as well as legal regulated poker online rooms. To this end, Fernando Zárate Salgado has agreed to receive a community of players in order to discuss about these points.
