Congressional RAWA Hearing Scheduled for December

This story was published more than 4 years ago.

This week the Executive Director of the Poker Players Alliance revealed that US Representative Jason Chaffetz has scheduled a hearing on the Restoration of America's Wire Act bill for December 9th, likely a last ditch attempt to get the bill passed into law for the year.

The hearing was revealed by John Pappas, who took to Twitter and wrote:

Pappas then went on to urge online gamblers to contact their representatives and let them know that they oppose an online gambling ban.

The Restoration of America's Wire Act bill would effectively outlaw online gambling in the United States, but the bill has gained little support from politicians, despite heavy support from gambling billionaire Sheldon Adelson, who has been pushing political donations on Republicans he hopes will push his agenda through.

Casino Listings will update this story as more developments arise.
