Land casino baron Sheldon Adelson's Coalition to Stop Internet Gambling has announced that they have hired a new lobbying group to try and convince politicians to vote to ban internet gambling in the USA.
The new lobbying firm is Squire Patton Boggs in Washington, and will help to push through CSIG's vision of outlawing internet gambling in the United States. Currently the group has influenced many Republican politicians to support the Restoration of America's Wire Act bill, which would effectively ban the practice of offering online poker or casino games in America.
The lobbying firm has an influential set of lobbyists under their employment, including former Senate Majority Leader Trent Lott, former Senator John Breaux, and other Capitol Hill workers.
Casino Listings is extensively covering the attempts to ban online gambling in the United States through RAWA, and we will update this story as more developments arise.
