Adelson enlists federal lawmakers to push his online gambling prohibition in Congress.
The Restoration of America’s Wire Act (RAWA), which he backs, is first introduced by Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) in the House. A companion bill is later introduced in the upper chamber by Sen. Lindsey Graham.
The bill gains a bit of traction during the lame duck period at the end of 2014 but is ultimately scuttled. Similar efforts will emerge in subsequent legislative sessions.
