Joe Barton Internet Poker Bill

Texas Republican Congressman Joe Barton arrives in Las Vegas on Friday for a “shuffle-up-and-deal” event, prompting some to speculate he will unveil his Internet poker bill on this day.

From Pokerati.com:

It’s still probably too early to make decent predictions, prognostication, and prop bets — haven’t even seen a draft yet — but the forces lining up this go-round are indeed different than before.

This time we’re talking about an online poker-only bill, with a different committee path, and a conservative Republican — perhaps looking to put a bipartisan feather in his cap before the ’12 elections — charged with rallying support on his side of the aisle.

Barton has gained some support even from the most diehard opponents of legalized Internet poker, including Alabama Rep. Spencer Bachus.
