Take Action: Fight Back Against Online Poker Prohibition Effort

Thanks to those who took action last year against the “Restoration of America’s Wire ACT” (RAWA). Thousands of letters and tweets were sent to Congress voicing your opinion. 

But the fight isn’t over and the bill has been reintroduced.
Take action today!

You can help defeat H.R. 707, Representative Jason Chaffetz’s online poker prohibition bill.

Last year, Senator Lindsey Graham and Congressman Jason Chaffetz — allying with the "Coalition to Stop Internet Gambling" – introduced federal legislation to ban online poker throughout the nation, including the three states that have already licensed and regulated Internet poker.  

On February 4, 2015, Representative Chaffetz reintroduced this bill which would expand the Wire Act of 1961 – a bill that obviously never contemplated the Internet - to prohibit state-level licensing and regulation of online poker, making Washington D.C. politicians the decision makers. This is a misguided prohibition, plain and simple. Prohibition protects no one. It’s imperative that you take time today to remind your elected officials that licensing and regulation is the way to protect consumers.
