Iowa politicians may soon be taking a second look at regulating online poker for Hawkeye State residents and Iowa regulators want it to be known that they are up to the task, according to recent statements made by the head of the Iowa Racing & Gaming Commission in taping an upcoming episode of “Iowa Press,” to air December 28th.

As first reported by RadioIowa, Jeff Lamberti, chairman of the IRGC, confirmed that if Iowa legislators decide to move ahead with online poker, his department is ready.

Said Lamberti, referring to online poker, “That’s really where the next step in gaming is moving. We’ve seen some states approve it and are moving in that direction.”
