    By TONY BATT
    STEPHENS WASHINGTON BUREAU
    WASHINGTON -- The effort to roll back an Internet gambling ban has reached the Senate, with a bill by Sen. Robert Menendez that calls for licensing and regulating online poker and other "games of skill" instead of outlawing them.

    Menendez, a New Jersey Democrat, intends to introduce the bill today, according to the Poker Players Alliance, which lobbies against the 2006 ban.

    This would be the first bill introduced in the Senate to weaken the ban, which ...

    Too bad they didn't stick it on a bill they knew would pass, like they did UIGEA. We can always hope though. :D

    Maybe they'll tag it onto the $700 billion bailout bill that will probably pass later today :rolleyes:

    Great minds think alike. That is exactly what I thought when I read about it. If they can stick UIGEA on a homeland security/military pay bill, then why not on the Wall Street bailout bill. :D

    What would be more fitting.

    I'm completely disgusted with the US Senate. In fact it totally numbs me that Bush, Cheney and McCain AND Pelosi, Reid, Obama and Biden all say that the country is doomed without passage of the 'rescue plan' notwithstanding the majority of rank-and-file congressmen, not to mention most of the American people, completely oppose this legislation. :mad:

    No wonder so many Americans use credit cards to survive. Hell, in protest I'm going to the mall and charge a new Armani suit that I can't afford.

    I find it ironic that our financial institutions gambled and lost billions and billions.... yet the powers that be continue to make it a primary concern that I might deposit and lose $25 at an online casino/poker room.....

    Casino trade group hurrying to nail down its position
    By Liz Benston

    Tue, Nov 25, 2008 (2 a.m.)

    Casino companies may be commiserating over their earnings troubles, but they are squabbling like extended family at Thanksgiving dinner over the prospect of legalized Internet gambling.

    After more than a decade of hit-and-miss efforts by individual casino companies and interest groups to develop lobbying strategies, the American Gaming Association the industrys premier trade group is rushing to clarify its position on Internet betting.

    The new sense of urgency comes as a presidential administration that appears friendlier ....
