The following is an email received from Greg Raymer.
"I am writing to you on behalf of the Poker Players Alliance (PPA) because we need your help. Congress is currently considering a bill which would clarify the legality of online poker in the United States by creating a regulatory and licensing framework. Please join me in supporting the "Internet Gambling Regulation and Enforcement Act".
The early support of many Congressional Representatives is crucial to the success of this bill. Please call your Representative Jon Porter today in his Washington, D.C. office, 202-225-3252. Ask him to cosponsor H.R. 2046 before the August Congressional recess.
Your support is vital. Please take a moment and call today.
If you wish to read more about this bill, or to get more information about the Poker Players Alliance, please visit http://www.pokerplayersalliance.org . Thank you for your time, and your support of poker in the United States.

Shelley Berkley, House of Representatives Nevada, has also been busy. She denounced the addition of the Internet gambling prohibition language to H.R. 4954 on the House floor. She has also cosponsored a bill with Congressman Barney Frank that was recently introduced, H.R. 2046, the Internet Gambling Regulation and Enforcement Act. "This bill would set up a regulatory framework for legal Internet gaming while ensuring that children and compulsive gamblers are denied access and state gambling laws are observed."As Americans we owe it to ourselves and everyone else to be aware of the law and abide by the law, but make the sure the law does what is designed to do and that it works for the purpose it was established. A port security measure has no bearing on Internet gaming and all of us have to take an active part in curing a wrong. Don't sit back and give up your rights, act now!
