Rep. Jerrold Nadler [NY-8] has joined the fight for Online Gambling when he became the 48th co-sponsor of the Internet Gambling, Regulation, and Enforcement Act (Bill H.R. 2046, aka the IGREA), which has been proposed by House Financial Services Committee Chairman, Rep. Barney Frank [MA-4].

Rep. Nadler is an important member of Congress serving his 9th term. Currently, Rep. Nadler represents District- 8, NY, which includes portions of Manhattan’s West Side, Lower Manhattan, and areas of Brooklyn. He currently serves on the House Judiciary Committee, and the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee.

More importantly, Rep. Nadler is the Chairman of the Constitution, Civil Rights, and Civil Liberties Subcommittee. In this position, he must deal with issues such as expression, religious freedom, privacy, due process, and he is the first line of defense in many crucial ideological battles that take place in the House.

His endorsement of the IGREA is not a small gesture, as he is well respected in the House and influential on the Judiciary Committee. This co-sponsorship may be just what the Online Gambling Industry needs to spark others on the Judiciary to join in.

A statement on his website says that “there is nothing more fundamental to being an American than the assurance against unwarranted government interference in one’s personal affairs.”

In addition to the above-mentioned committees, he also serves on the Crime, Terrorism, and Homeland Security Subcommittee.

Rep. Nadler can be contacted at any of the offices listed below.

We encourage all to call, write, and/or Fax thank you notes to him for his insight towards Internet Gambling and how it is negatively affecting cross border trading and violating long standing treaties with our allies worldwide.

We suggest to politely request of him his continued support and encouragement to engage in further discussion of the benefits of legalized Online Gambling. Also suggest that he pursue others to join the fight to restore some very basic rights that the current Administration has taken away for moral reasons.
