In the lame duck session of Congress it is being speculated whether or not the US federal government will be able to get their online poker bill passed.
I encourage any of you who are interested to read the bill and make up your minds. From what I gather, this online poker bill would outlaw any other form of online gambling.
Read what you can about this bill and write your representatives to voice your opinon.
I have included the bill below (if it lets me attach it).

Thank you, 'Slim. I will definitely check this out soon.
Hope is a good thing, maybe the best of the things, and no good thing ever dies.
I skimmed it and it seems to have good intentions, albeit with some big problems.
Obviously I think that the prohibition of all forms of non-poker (and state lottery) online gambling is foolish. They have been trying to do that with various degrees of success for the past 5 years or so and it hasn't stopped all casinos from accepting Americans, nor has it stopped Americans being ripped off by less scrupulous operators. I don't see this bill having any major effect in that regard, even if it is passed.
On the poker side of things, the background checking of operators and insistence on separation of player and operator funds are good things.
From what I have read recently, the consensus of opinion seems to be that this has very little chance of being passed.
Always play it safe! Consult our list of rogue casinos and warnings before depositing at a new casino.

Agreed, Ed. As much as I'd love to see something be passed (although not with the other gambling restrictions in place), we have more important things to get passed before the end of the year.
This will probably not make it this year.
