Senate May Add Web Poker to Spending Bill, Washington Post Says

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s proposal to legalize and tax online poker may become part of a spending package or other must-pass legislation before Congress adjourns for the year, the Washington Post reported.

Reid, a Nevada Democrat, decided against adding his measure to a compromise tax-cut package amid concerns it would undermine the tax bill’s prospects for passage, the newspaper said, citing unidentified lobbyists and congressional aides.
