Advocates of regulated online gambling in the United States received good news this week when it was learned Sheldon Adelson and the Las Vegas Sands Corp.
have decided to stop supporting a 50-state ban on online gambling. Adelson has spent tens of millions of dollars in supporting
“Restoration of America’s Wire Act” (RAWA), but has seen the legislation stall on Capital Hill.

Online players should not celebrate too soon, because the new RAWA bill might well be perfectly tooled to cause mischief,
if a nativist politician came to power looking to score easy victories over anyone deemed a devious foreigner.

RAWA first was placed before the US Congress in the spring of 2014, when Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and Rep.
Jason Chaffetz of Utah each sponsored the bill in their respective houses of Congress. A bipartisan list of lawmakers signed on to co-sponsor the bill,
and there were concerns whether a federal ban on online gambling might happen.

Hopefully this is not a joke and we actually will see something good happen with this. :)
