This week it was revealed that the Coalition to Stop Internet Gambling lobbying group has hired The Keelen Group to help lobby politicians in its continued efforts to ban online gambling within the United States.
The Coalition to Stop Internet Gambling was formed by Las Vegas Sands owner Sheldon Adelson, and has the goal of lobbying politicians in an effort to get the activity banned in the United States. Last year the group paid out more than $290,000 to try to get the Restoration of America's Wire Act passed into law, although those efforts were ultimately unsuccessful.
Conversely, it was reported that Amaya has hired lobbying group CSA Strategies to help pass through a bill that would license online gambling.
