    Default Treasury Dept. ready to announce regulations?

    According to www.easybourse.com, the US Treasury Department has finalized the regulations that will affectively prohibit Internet gambling in the United States.

    The story (linked here http://www.easybourse.com/bourse-act...ambling-557380) appears to have been originally posted on the Dow Jones newswire ... but Buzzy can't find that link. More on this as details are available.

    One interesting note about this story is that it makes the point that Treasury may block ALL Internet gambling transactions, including ones currently deemed legal, like wagers on horse racing. The horse racing lobby will freak out if this happens.

    And PPA Director John Pappas makes a very good point about placing new burdens on the financial institutions, which are having enough trouble right now as it is.
