RAWA Fails to Become Law in 2015

This story was published more than 4 years ago.

Proponents of online gambling in the United States can smile this week, as it appears that the Restoration of America's Wire Act bill has failed to become law yet again, as politicians unsuccessfully attempted to get the bill attached to the omnibus federal spending bill for next year.

The failure to attach the bill to the budget is yet another large blow for those looking to ban online gambling in the United States, including Las Vegas Sands owner Sheldon Adelson, who has made it no secret he has no objection to spending a bunch of money in an attempt to get the bill passed.

Even though the bill was defeated for the year, it is likely we will see the bill pushed again next year by politicians who enjoy getting large campaign contributions from Adelson and his company.
