Harry Reid Down on Congressional Online Gambling Bill

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid believes that a bill proposed by New York Congressman Peter King to legalize online gambling at the federal level undermines the efforts of Web poker advocates.

In an interview with the Las Vegas Sun, Reid says that King’s bill would authorize just about everything with little oversight.

“(It) basically authorizes everything – 21, poker, everything,” Reid said.

“I felt for several months now that I don’t see any movement on this,” Reid said. “I don’t see anything happening.”

From the Sun:

While Reid added that he doubted King’s bill would pass, the introduction of a broad piece of gaming legislation both divides the sympathies of pro-gaming lawmakers and helps to stiffen the resolve of those opposed to gaming, whom online poker enthusiasts had hoped to persuade with the limited nature of their gaming legalization.
