Ban It, and They Will Come
In fact, the study's latest $52 billion estimate on U.S. tax revenue from internetgambling is a full 22% higher than its estimate in 2007... based entirely on the rapid growth in U.S. online gambling—despite the ban!
...Which is why House Financial Services Committee Chairman BarneyFrank is about to reintroduce this bill, effectively countering the UIGEA. (It's a revised version of Franks' 2007 InternetGambling Regulation & Enforcement Act, which failed to make it to the House despite attracting support for the measure.)
According to the Financial Times, Frank wants to "reintroduce a bill in the next few weeks to establish a licensing and regulatory framework for online gambling operators."
