It seems that online poker legislation is no closer to completion in the US following an interview with a frustrated Harry Reid in the Las Vegas Sun earlier this week.
It was hoped that the Reid/Kyl bill – which would make most online gambling illegal with the exception of online poker – could be pushed through congress in the lame duck session. However, an apparent lack of interest on the part of the Republicans seems to be delaying the process, despite two senior members supporting the bill; not least, Jon Kyl himself.“I’ve said on a number of occasions, the internet poker bill could move forward if we get 15-17 Republican votes. At this stage we’ve got none”, Kyl said.Indeed, Dan Heller, one of the Republicans who supports the bill but is yet to vote on it, told the Las Vegas Sun that the issue wasn’t “on the front burner” right now because of the threat of recession gripping the US. What happens now remains to be seen but if the general sense of apathy continues then it could be another long wait before the Reid/Kyl bill gets a chance to legalise the game.
