Restoration of America's Wire Act slammed by coalition of free market organisations.

Influential free market organisations continue to be alarmed by the introduction in Congress of the Restoration of America's Wire Act, a proposal that seeks a ban on many types of online gambling in the United States (see previous reports).

In new developments the Center for Freedom and Prosperity(CF&P), joined by representatives from 11 other similarly motivated organisations, has sent a letter to Congress opposing RAWA and claiming that the proposed legislation would override state laws pertaining to internet gaming and the sale of lottery tickets.

Directed to House Judiciary Committee Chairman Rep. Robert Goodlatte, the letter urges respect for the 10th Amendment right of states to set their own gaming rules. It is signed by the heads of the following organisations:

Center for Freedom and Prosperity

Competitive Enterprise Institute

Council for Citizens Against Government Waste

The American Conservative Union

Taxpayers Protection Alliance

Less Government

R Street Institute

Independent Women's Forum

Campaign for Liberty

Independent Women's Voice

Sovereign Society Freedom Alliance

Center for Individual Freedom

The Coalition notes the "enormous pressure" being placed on Congress by some brick and mortar casino owners [presumably a veiled reference to Sheldon Adelson, the land casino billionaire widely believed to be the driving force behind RAWA] and others with vested interests that would profit from the legislation, but warns in the letter:

"RAWA is an outright assault on federalism. The legislation tramples on the Tenth Amendment by banning state regulation of online gambling
