Reid / Kyl Bill Draft Drops

This article may be outdated. Get the latest news on US Online Poker here.

An apparently credible draft of the much-anticipated federal bill to regulate online poker has found its way into the media.

The draft was first published by Ian Imrich at JDSupra.com.  You can read the full text of the draft at that link, along with some highlights & analysis from Imrich.

As I noted yesterday on PokerFuse, the player penalties that were a part of an earlier outline of the bill appear to have been removed from the draft (as it currently stands).

Other than that, there aren’t too many new items of interest that weren’t a part of the outline.  I have a write up of a few key takeaways that should be germane to poker players over at QuadJacks.

As the bill draft leaked somewhat late on a Friday, there hasn’t been much (any?) coverage in the mainstream media so far.  Even the poker media appears to be by and large still digesting the mammoth 73 page bill.
