The following is an email received from the Poker Player's Alliance in a continuing effort to make Internet Poker legal and safe for all of us. Please support this effort.
Dear Fellow PPA Member: As your chairman, it brings me great pride to report that your Member of Congress has agreed to co-sponsor HR 2046. Your grassroots efforts are making an enormous difference!
HR 2046 was introduced on April 26, 2007 by House Financial Services Committee Chairman Rep. Barney Frank. If HR 2046 becomes law, online poker will be safe, secure and regulated. The bill would create stringent licensing to ensure that poker players and consumers are protected.
Thanks to the great work of grassroots poker activists like you, your Member of Congress is now a co-sponsor of HR 2046. Now, we really need to show your Representative that we appreciate this important gesture of support. Please take a moment to send your U.S. Representative a brief "Thank You" note, by clicking here or below. As a former Senator, I can tell you that lawmakers need to hear this kind of positive feedback to assure them that the voters back in their district support their efforts.
Please click below to send your Thank-You note today. And stay tuned for more updates as Congress continues to move closer to protecting our rights to play the great game of poker. Together, we will prevail!
Sincerely, The Honorable Alfonse D'Amato PPA Chairman
