Just received this today from the Poker Player’s Alliance:
Dear Fellow PPA Member:
I have wonderful news to report! On Thursday, April 26, Rep. Barney Frank introduced HR 2046, the Internet Gambling Regulation and Enforcement Act of 2007. HR 2046 will lift the prohibition on playing poker online. Your efforts are making a difference!
Representative Frank is the Chairman of the important House Financial Services Committee. And he understands the injustice that we have suffered. When he introduced the bill, he told reporters that “The existing legislation is an inappropriate interference on the personal freedom of Americans and this interference should be undone”.
But he can’t do this job alone. Now, we need to help Congressman Frank build support for his bill.
You can regain your right to enjoy safe, secure online poker – but only if you stand up for your rights. And PPA is here to help you do just that.
This is a landmark day for freedom. But it is only the first step of the process. Join me in celebrating this milestone – and take action to build support for HR 2046.

Please take a few minutes to write your Congressman using the form provided by the PPA above. Even a douchebag Congressman will do the right thing if he knows his constituents are watching.
