RICHMOND, Virgínia - Em uma reversão impressionante da sorte na terça -feira, a Câmara dos Delegados da Virgínia, a Câmara Baixa do Legislativo estadual, votou esmagadoramente um projeto de lei que o tornaria ilegal para entidades de jogo no estado em que ele usa o slogan "Virginiaé para apostadores “para anunciar seus serviços.

A votação de 67 a 32 contra o projeto foi chocante porque no mês passado o Senado do Estado da Virgínia, a Câmara Alta do Legislativo estadual, votou por unanimidade (40 a 0) para aprovar o mesmo projeto.
No entanto, um porta -voz do autor do projeto disse ao Gambling 911 que a Câmara dos Delegados pode votar no projeto novamente na quarta -feira, depois de fazer algumas mudanças na legislação.
"O projeto falhou na Câmara, mas eles imediatamente o trouxeram para reconsideração", disse Jeff Ryer, secretário de imprensa do senador estadual Thomas Norment, patrocinador do projeto.
"Teremos que ver o que acontece na quarta -feira", disse ele.“Voltará ao calendário da casa na quarta -feira.Se eles votam novamente, depende da Câmara.
“Os dias finais da sessão são frequentemente assim.Quando a casa traz de volta uma conta que eles acabaram de votar, ela significa costume que eles querem fazer alterações, mas veremos ".
That appears to be what happened as the House of Delegates voted 58-35 in favor of the bill that bans the term "Virginia is for Bettors".  The VirginiaisforBettors.com website remained up with the bastardized slogan on display as of 2:45 pm ET Wednesday afternoon. 
It was not immediately clear why the bill was rejected on Tuesday and approved on Wednesday.
26 members changed their vote from No to Yes while 6 went in the opposite direction.

Norment, a Republican and a lawyer, became angry when he recently heard a gambling commercial on his car radio that declared “Virginia is for bettors.”

Virginia has legal sports betting and casino gambling.

The state’s tourism bureau has used the advertising slogan “Virginia is for lovers” since 1969, and the betting slogan is a play on words of that.

“Frankly, it annoyed me,” Norment told a State Senate gambling sub-committee. “We’ve spent a lifetime trying to market ‘Virginia is for lovers.’ I just felt it was trespassing on it.”

According to the wording of the bill, it “prohibits sports betting and casino gaming operators and their affiliates from using the name of Virginia or the Commonwealth in an advertisement in association with their products or services (and) a violation is subject to a civil penalty of up to $50,000.”

The state’s governor, Glenn Youngkin, a Republican, has not publicly stated whether he will sign or veto the bill if it reaches his desk.

But now that the Republican-controlled House of Delegates has nixed the bill that the Democrat-controlled State Senate approved, if the House doesn’t re-vote, the issue will be moot and the bill will have died on the vine.
