HR2267, the Internet Gambling Regulation Consumer Protection & Enforcement Act launched in May this year by Massachusetts Democrat Barney Franks, may have been delayed until September by the work overload in Congress  but that hasn't stopped another five Congressmen signing up as co-sponsors this week, bringing the total number so far to 40.
The latest politicians to give their bipartisan support to the bill, which seeks to regulate and license online gambling in the United States, are Rep. Neil Abercrombie of Hawaii, Rep. Earl Blumenauer of Oregon, Rep. Bill Foster of Illinois, Rep. Tim Ryan of Ohio and Rep. Jerrold Nadler of New York.
