|Rep. Bob Goodlatte has announced that his Internet gambling legislation, which would make it illegal for Americans to gamble online, has been revised an attempt to make it more palatable to the United States Senate.|
The revised bill has addressed issues such as allowing state lottery tickets to be sold online and maintaining the sovereignty of Indian tribal nations.
Despite movements by states such as Nevada and New Jersey to legalizing legislate online gambling, Goodlatte still believes that his legislation is valid and since good chance to pass through the House of Representatives. In the United States's absence of Internet gambling law, other nations such as Great Britain who are taking a more proactive effort to license online casinos may find that they finally overcome the United States in terms of electronic payments and Internet productivity.
