U.S. Safe Port Act (aka Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act) Passes House and Senate

September 29th, 2006

Well, after over 9 years of debate and votes, legislation attempting to prohibit the use of bank financial instruments for many types of internet gambling has passed both the U.S.House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate. It got there through a back door route, by attachment in closed Committee deliberations to the Conference Report. Language was added to a bill which had previously only dealt with protecting the ports of the U.S. from terrorist attack. The conference report can be found here on the House of Representatives website , which contains the inserted internet gambling language beginning on page 213.

Entry Filed under: U.S. Legislation
