United States

After the failure to include the Restoration of America’s Wire Act (RAWA) legislation in the omnibus bill at the end of the congressional lame duck session, Senator Harry Reid has said that he expects the legislation to be introduced in the next legislative session.

Reid said that he and Sheldon Adelson agree that online gambling should be banned in the US, although he would personally argue for an exemption for online poker.

“I think there will be efforts made to look at the Wire Act in a Republican-initiated Congress, yes I do,” Reid said. “I think there will be efforts made to get rid of the Wire Act.”
