Anti-gaming bill goes before the House

On Friday, Congress launched a new bill which takes a shot at banning Americans from Internet gaming. Virginia Representative Republican Bob Goodlatte has been joined by a fellow Representative from Virginia, Democrat Rick Boucher, and approximately 100 other members of the House of Representatives in supporting Goodlatte's resubmittal of his 2000 bill. Details of the bill, called the Internet Gambling Prohibition Act, were released late on Friday afternoon and the bill has been forwarded on to the House Judiciary Committee for further debate and action. 

What's still in question is how the Act would be implemented (if the bill is passed). Because most online gaming sites are located on foreign soil, it would be almost impossible to enforce the Act against them. If the bill is passed, there would be virtually no one who would either have the authority or the ability to arrest and/or prosecute the multitude of offshore sites.
