New York Governor Pataki refused to sign the extradiction warrant on September 14th... the day Dicks resigned his CEO position at UK based Sportingbet PLC. Again today Gov Pataki reaffirmed his position by refusing to sign the warrant for extradition of Peter Dicks to Louisiana The warrant failed and New York, under the leadership of Pataki, has stood up for the online gaming industry.
THIS IS NOT A TEST -- Call Your Senator Now
U.S. Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist is attaching the Internet Gambling Prohibition Act to a bill that is expected to be approved by the Congress early this evening. PLEASE call your Senators today and tell them that they should oppose the Internet gambling bill being part of Port Security legislation.
If the Port Security bill passes, with the Internet gambling language included, your ability to enjoy poker online will be at serious risk.
The measure to ban Internet Gambling in the United States is now a Presidential signature away from reality, having passed as an amendment to the 'must-pass' Port Security Bill.
I sincerely hope the industry now redoubles its efforts to overturn this legislation and promote new legislation that will legalize and regulate the industry.

Stateline, NV - Next time there is a major poker tournament in Lake Tahoe, poker players everywhere would be advised to visit and play in an area which is unquestionably one of the most beautiful in the nation. Nestled in a lush pine forest on the south shore of crystalline Lake Tahoe (the world's largest alpine lake), Harvey's Resort and Casino is steps away from golfing, boating, skiing, shopping, and hiking. It is a paradise for nature lovers. The poker isn't too bad, either.
