Graham Hearing Could Touch On I-Poker Ban Bill
The Card Player cites CEI`s Michelle Minton on internet gambling regulation:
While the hearing on July 8 isn’t centered on Internet gambling like a March hearing to discuss Rep. John Chaffetz’s (R-Utah) anti-online gaming bill, which appears to be a non-factor at this point due to inactivity, Graham could give some indication about his commitment to passing the prohibition, according to the Competitive Enterprise Institute’s Michelle Minton.
“While it’s unlikely the Senators will spend much time discussing Internet gambling, we can be certain that Graham won’t miss an opportunity to demonstrate his commitment to Sheldon Adelson’s top issue,” Minton told Card Player. “We know that Graham and GOP leadership want RAWA to get a vote now rather than dealing with it during an election year when the connection to Adelson might hurt their candidates’ chances.”
