02/09/2012 :  MORE ONLINE POKER SPECULATION IN THE UNITED STATES
 
Is Harry Reid about to make his move?
 
Yet another story on the supposedly imminent introduction of an online poker legalization bill in Congress has surfaced following tweets from a U.S. publication titled The Helmsman, firing up hopes triggered last year when there was talk of Nevada Senator Harry Reid and Arizona Senator Jon Kyl collaborating on such a move.
 
The Helmsman quotes a lobbyist who was told whilst on a trip to Washington DC that Reid was planning to attach a legalization bill to an important unemployment payroll tax bill scheduled to hit the Senate later this (February) month.
 
There does not appear to be any firm confirmation of Reid's intentions; the Nevada politician has previously tried to push a similar bill through Congress without success.
