Nevada Delegation Wary of Chaffetz Online Gaming Bill

Nevada Sens. Harry Reid and Dean Heller haven’t decided whether to support or oppose Rep. Jason Chaffetz’s push to ban all forms of online gaming, including poker. 

Reports the Las Vegas Sun:

Reid and Heller, who both support legalizing poker only, have had many open and politically charged disagreements about how best to get an online gaming measure through Congress. But they now count themselves on the same page when it comes to facing a bill that could pose a serious threat to online poker ever being federally legalized: See what it is, and whether they could, in the future, work a carve-out into the bill.

The Chaffetz-Graham legislation seeks to restore a prior reading of the Wire Act that made financial transactions for all forms of online gaming illegal.
