For the moment, the rush to legislate the ban on online gambling has been slowed. Senator John Warner, (R) from Virginia, has refused to allow the banning of online gambling to be tacked on to an upcoming defense bill
. Opponents of online gambling were hoping to tack their measure on to a bill that "must pass" but will apprently be forced to delay. Congress recesses in one week, giving only a few days left if this measure is to be passed before the November 7th elections.
