    Well that was only in the Senate, the House would need to pass it as well and then the president would need to sign it into law. If the house & senate passed similar bills, it has to go to committee to work out the details, which give it even more of a chance to die before it becomes law.

    It still has to go through to the US Senate. Now the big boys (and gals) will be getting involved. When? I don't know.

    Voice your opinion, why? It never reaches the eyes nor ears of any government official other than the trained monkey that does nothing more than sit and hit Delete, or tosses unread votes and opinions in trash can.

    I continue voicing and voting, for I STILL at this time have the right to do so. US of A a free country? In small ways, but the big picture, not at all. It's not a democracy any longer, it's becoming a dictatorship fast and furious.

    'We the People' are suppose to be the government, not the elected liars, thieves, and controlling people who are suppose to be our voice instead of our muzzles.

    This is my Opinion Only!!

    Thank you all for explaining this to me. I really used to know all the branches of the government and how a bill gets passed. However, my memory chose not to remember that nonsense when I got hit on the head. I am so grateful to you all for taking the time to help me understand when I get confused. ((((hugs))))

    This reminds me of the moritorium taken out by the Federal Government here in OZ.

    http://www.noie.gov.au/projects/conf...bling/bill.htm

    The population of Australia is around the 19 million mark, however Aprox. 700,000 aussies gamble online each month.

    Trying to monitor such activities in the USA
    IMO
    would be a logistical nightmare. ( definately not a logical act )

    This has a fair road to travel yet.

    What we have now is one Bill in the House of Representatives (the Backus/Leech Bill) and one in the Senate (this just approved for vote Kyl Bill)

    They have not been passed - the committees have just pushed them on for voting.

    They both seek to attack the financial instruments that in the USA make online gambling possible.

    What normally happens when there are two competing Bills is that a committee has to sit to decide whether they can be combined or which should take precedence. So that's likely to take some debate.

    Then there will be the actual vote. After that the President has to approve it.

    The political season ends I think in August/September or thereabouts, so there is time pressure as well - in the past various banning attempts have run out of legs as the sessions end. And this year the US legislative system has a lot of stuff to get through.

    Meantime people like NeTeller (and I'm sure there are others) have already announced that they are making other plans and opening overseas subsidiaries. We all know that where there is a will there will be a way.

    I am willing to bet that this is a done deal. The US Government wants to find a way to control and tax the internet.
    IMHO
    , I believe that the decision has been made to to away with over seas internet gaming. They have decided to crack down on terrorist (US Citizens). And controlling our funding and activities. Big Casinos in Vegas will enter the online gaming. There we will be monitor and taxed!!! TRUST ME ON THIS ONE GUYS! It's gonna past and taxation will increase
