PPA’s Congressional Ratings Guide Available to View Online

by Lou on September 25, 2010

The Poker Players Alliance recently released its Congressional Ratings Guide, which you can access at www.congressionalpoker.org. The guide provides poker players a simple way to find out how strongly members of Congress support their poker rights.

This year 194 members of Congress scored a “D” or an “F” rating—as opposed to the 258 who received a “D” or “F” in 2008.  Ninety-one members of Congress earned an “A” for their strong support for poker freedom.

PPA members can automatically email their member of Congress directly from the guide to voice their support for poker and those who protect their right to play this game of skill. Correspondance by members of Congress in response to letters, emails, calls or tweets received by constituents can also be viewed.

The PPA Congressional Rating Guide is updated periodically and is searchable by state and by zip code. 

“The poker community has made tremendous progress over the past two years in educating members of Congress on the benefits of regulating online poker.  The grades in our 2010 Congressional Ratings Guide indicate that progress, but also underscore that more needs to be done,” said Former Senator Alfonse D’Amato, chairman of the PPA.  “As we approach the mid-term elections, this guide is a valuable resource for PPA members—and all poker players in the country – as they choose to support candidates who support their right and freedom to play poker.”
