News Flash on the Omibus Bill
Play Now

Senator Mitch McConnell, minority leader, has just announced that the Senate should reject the Omibus Bill. This is the bill that would fund the Federal Government. More importantly, this bill may also have the poker legislation within it. The Senator wants to vote on this bill next year when the Republicans have the majority. What this means is that the poker legislation may not become part of the bill as the Republicans are opposed to any form of online gambling. Therefore, if the poker legislation is not in the Tax Cuts bill but has been added to the Omibus Bill, another fight is in the offing.
