Representative Chris Hurst just proposed a bill into the state legislature which would make playing all forms of fantasy sports which involve “valuable consideration” (aka, money) a felony. I don’t live in Washington, but if you do, please add your comments to this page:
I have no idea if anyone from the state actually reads those comments, so also write and/or call your district representative.
Be sure to read the text of that bill, as it’s almost laughable if it weren’t so serious. He actually references John Oliver as a source… Hopefully this gets shot down or heavily amended while under consideration, but it’s up to the residents of Washington state to speak up and let your congressional leaders know your thoughts.
