Brazilian Senat rejected the gambling bill

Brazil’s Comisión de Constitución, Justicia y Ciudadanía (CCJ) has considered a legislative draft on the reform of the Brazilian gambling sector. Senator Ciro Noguiera described the bill as the government’s answer to the growing black market operations, as it will direct the revenue from unregulated gambling services into Brazil’s state coffers. The legislation, if passed, will also pave the way for the creation of a new sector and thousands of new jobs for Brazil’s citizens.

The bill was scheduled for discussion several times last year, but committee members failed to discuss the proposal—until Wednesday, when it became the top agenda at the parliament commission’s hearing.

Finally a bill that sought to legalise games of chance and casinos in Brazil was voted down in the Senate’s Constitution and Justice Commission.
