Christian Coalition Applauds Congressman Goodlatte's Internet Gambling Prohibition Act Introduced With Over 100 Co-sponsors

Washington, D.C. -- Christian Coalition of America commends Congressman Bob Goodlatte, (R-VA), for introducing his "Internet Gambling Prohibition Act" with over 100 co-sponsors. The Wire Act passed years ago by the United States Congress prohibits gambling over telephone wires. However, it is unclear as to whether or not using the Internet to operate a gambling business is illegal. Congressman Goodlatte's bill amends the Wire Act to make it clear that its prohibitions include Internet gambling by modernizing the Act after the many new technological developments since the Act was passed. The Goodlatte bill when it becomes law will expand the existing prohibition to include all bets or wagers, not merely bets or wagers on sporting events or contests.
