          Hopefully the senators will have already received their payouts from the mafia, uh, I mean the special interest groups and will shelve the issue, or find something picky they don't like that will never get resolved in committee.

            I'm with everyone else, don't think it will pass this year. Online gambling is still relatively new and I don't think any major changes will be made just yet.

                If it does pass, I think it will take a few years to come into effect.

                  A few points:

                  1. The Senate will come back to Washington in September for about a month, so there still will be a chance for them to vote on it before recessing for the year.
                  2. I have heard that there are both Democrats and Republicans who have serious reservations about the bill, and if something does pass it may be very different from what it looks like coming out of the House.
                  3. If the Senate does pass something very different from the House bill, that in itself may kill the bill (hey, isn't that the name of a cool movie?), because the House bill was carefully constructed in order to gain wide support, and any changes would instantly change that support.
                  4. If it does pass, and the House and Senate agree on any changes, it will go into effect immediately after the President signs it.  That means before the end of 2006.
                  5. BTW, I voted "NO" above.

                    I didn't vote because I have no idea what our government will do from one day to the next.

                    As I've said before, the government has to get their muzzles out of our bee-hinds and start taking care of the real business at hand.

                    There are hundreds of more important issues than how we choose to spend our money and where we choose to spend it.  This is yet another smoke screen to deflect their ineptitude at dealing with real problems.

                    The reported earthquakes on the east coast have been traced to the graves of our founding fathers.  They are spinning like tops in their graves.

                      I don't like keeping track of the government and its dealings because its mostly just bad news. They will mess up big time if they decide to pass this bill...they will then be moving slowly into dictatorship. If they were smart, they would wisely drop this bill...they take one step in this direction of taking our rights to play in other states and how we want to spend our money they are in for big trouble in the future.

                      So no, the bill will NEVER pass because it is an infringment of our rights to our freedom of choice.

                        i'm glad to see you voted no.i sure hope the senate doesn't get around to voting on this.i have heard they have a lot to do so this might never get voted on at all.the only thing that scares me is like you said about changing certain things in the bill to suit other people in the senate and rushing it through after the changes are made.i heard that happens sometimes.the good points are that the banks are against this because it would be too time consuming to monitor every single bank account for signs of gambling activity and it would cost the banks a ton of money in the process.the horse racing industry also saw some language in the bill they didn't like either so there are senators with interests in the field holding the bill up too.if they do pass this bill it would make america look like china and thats not good.its unconstitutional in some ways for them to tell someone they can or cannot spend their money any way they chose.it makes the government look petty too.they really need to go after child predators and child molesters instead of worrying about someone gambling.this bill is very unpopular in my opinion........

                            The bill WILL NOT pass, period. There is no IF in this matter, it just WON'T. Focuse to much on it not getting passed and sure enough we will get what we thought we didn't want, I say to the folks who play online to just keep on happily playing the game online and leave the matter alone.

                            This is getting to much attention, we should just be happy in the moment instead of worrying about a future beyond anyones control.
