Sheldon Adelson's influence in the US Congress reared its ugly head again, as Congressman Jason Chaffetz re-introduced the Restoration of America's Wire Act to fellow lawmakers.
Chaffetz introduced the bill with the backing of six fellow Republicans as well as Democrat Tulsi Gabbard, and is nearly identical to the same failed bill that the Utah Congressman introduced last year.
When discussing his bill, Chaffetz said that he consulted with Adelson while also convening with the House Judiciary Committee, who will oversee the bill. There has been no timeline given for the bill to move forward, but Chaffetz claims that House leadership is interested in the matter.
