There is renewed interest in a bill sponsored by Rep. Barney Frank, D-Mass., to overturn the ban on Internet gambling since the recent federal seizure of some gambling winnings. On Friday, the bill gained four new co-sponsors. However, some are concerned that the accessibility of online gambling makes it too easy for young people to get involved. The National Council on Problem Gambling is neutral about reversing the ban.
