Goodlatte Revised Bill Follows Leach
By sam
Rep. Bob Goodlatte spoke out on Thursday, telling a house judiciary subcommittee that his new revised gambling bill was designed to succeed where others had failed.


The bill (H.R 3215) is tied into Rep. Jim Leach’s bill which prohibits persons or organisations from using forms of payment at ‘illegal gambling sites,’ Leach’s bill was passed last month.


H.R 3215 would reaffirm states control over their own lotteries, and gives law enforcement agencies powers to move against groups that enable Internet gambling. The bill also adopts a hands-off policy on Indian gaming and horse racing.


Critics of the bill say that it would have little effect on an industry that operates mainly from outside of U.S soil, and cite regulation as the best option for security and economic benefit.
