H.R. 4777, Internet Gambling Prohibition Act

The following article is directly from the Poker Players Alliance, of whitch I am a member, and I encourage ALL poker players to join. They are one of the few orgainizations out there looking out for our best interest in Washington!

"In the coming days, the House Judiciary Committee will vote on H.R. 4777, Internet Gambling Prohibition Act, sponsored by Congressman Bob Goodlatte (R-VA). This legislation turns private companies into the government’s “morality police.” It requires Internet service providers (ISPs) to remove gambling related hyperlinks and forces banks to monitor your purchases and transactions to ensure that you are not gambling online. The plan is an affront to civil liberties. If the committee passes the bill, your ability to enjoy poker online will be at serious risk.

Each member of the Poker Players Alliance has a critical voice in this debate. The members of the committee, listed below, need to know that Americans think this legislation is a bad idea.

For more information about H.R. 4777, go to the Poker Players Alliance Web site, www.pokerplayersalliance.org.

Please Call! Tell these Representatives to oppose the Goodlatte plan.
