    American Gaming Association Spent $1.7 Million in 2007 to Lobby on Internet Gambling

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- The American Gaming Association, a trade group that represents the casino industry, spent $1.7 million in 2007 to lobby the federal government on Internet gambling legislation.

    The trade group, which opposes legislative proposals that would preempt state authority to regulate gambling, spent $800,000 on lobbying in the second half of the year, according to a disclosure form posted online last week by the Senate's public records office.

    The American Gaming Association supports legislation that would fund a federal study on the impact of Internet gambling. The group has remained neutral on a law passed by Congress in late 2006 that attempts to crack down on Internet gambling by banning the use of credit cards to pay for online bets.

    Among the members of the American Gaming Association are Bally Technologies Inc. and MGM Mirage.

    Lobbyists are required to disclose activities that could influence members of the executive and legislative branches under a federal law enacted in 1995.
