Today marked another mile-stone in the effort to legalize certain Internet skill games at the federal level.
Rep. Robert E. Andrews [NJ-1] became the 21st representative to co-sponsor the Skill Games Exemption bill H.R. 2610 offered by Florida congressman, Robert Wexler.
Congressman Andrews is currently serving his 10th term in congress. During that time he has served on the Education and Labor Committee and is currently the chairman of that committee. He also is on the Subcommittee of Higher Education, Lifelong Learning and Competitiveness.
He sits on the House Armed Services committee and the Subcommittees of Oversight and Investigations, as well as Terrorism and Unconventional Threats committees, and he also serves on the Budget Committee.
The Philadelphia Inquirer credits him as “being properly focused on fixing the looming fiscal disaster in Washington.”
The congressman in not typical of most, he takes the train from his home daily in New Jersey and returns from Washington DC to his family the same night. Over his career he has been a strong supporter of his constituents and is known for fighting for them and their needs.
His district office is located at:
506-A White Horse Pike
Haddon Heights, N.J. 08035
He will be in town for the Christmas break, so it is suggested that those who can, drop in to thank him for his support, and as always, you are encouraged to be polite and gracious.
