I thought you might find this interesting. According to this reference, the HR 4411 bill would cost the average American household $0.02 to be put in place. If you want my 2 cents (pardon the pun), they can all go to blazes on this one. Anyway, here it is:
The Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act of 2006
|H.R. 4411 would prohibit businesses from accepting credit cards, checks, or other bank instruments from gamblers who illegally bet over the Internet. It also would direct the Department of the Treasury and the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (the Federal Reserve) to issue regulations outlining policies and procedures that could be used by financial institutions to identify and block gambling-related transactions that are transmitted through their payment systems. Compliance with those prohibitions and regulations would be enforced by various federal agencies as well as state governments, and violations would be subject to new civil remedies and criminal penalties. Finally, the bill would require the Secretary of the Treasury to report annually to the Congress on any international deliberations regarding Internet gambling.|
