NEW YORK CONGRESSMAN JOINS IGREA SUPPORTERS There are now 48 co-sponsors for Barney Frank's legislative attempt to regulate online gambling in the USA The Congressional representative for the 8th District of New York, Jerrold Nadler, became the 48th co-sponsor of Congressman Barney Frank's  HR 2046 Internet Gambling Regulation and Enforcement Act this week, seeking to regulate online gambling in the United States. Nadler signed in a week where a Congressional hearing heard financial institutions, politicians, regulatory drafters and pressure groups roundly condemn anti-online gambling legislation currently in force as impractical and virtually impossible to enforce. Now serving his 9th term in Congress, Representative Nadler speaks for the 8th District of New York, which includes part of Manhattan's West Side, Lower Manhattan, and areas of Brooklyn.  Highly respected in the House of Representatives, he is a member of Frank's House Judiciary Committee, the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee and is chairman of the influential Constitution, Civil Rights, and Civil Liberties Subcommittee, which oversees issues relating to freedom of expression and religion, personal privacy and the correct observance by the authorities of due process. He also serves on the Crime, Terrorism, and Homeland Security Subcommittee.  The official website of Representative Nadler sums up his strong belief in the rights of Americans in asserting: "….there is nothing more fundamental to being an American than the assurance against unwarranted government interference in one's personal affairs." The following is the full sponsorship list to date for Congressman Frank's IGREA: Neil Abercrombie (D-Hawaii)  John Larson (D-Conn.)  Gary Ackerman (D-N.Y.) Tim Bishop (D – N.Y.) George Miller (D – CAL)  Carolyn McCarthy (D-N.Y.) Jerrold Nadler (R – NY 8)  Robert Andrews (D-N.J.)  Jim McDermott (D-Wash.) Joe Baca (D-Calif.)  James McGovern (D-Mass.) Shelley Berkley (D-Nev.)  Charlie Melancon (D-La.) Howard Berman (D-Calif.)  James Moran (D-Va.) Earl Blumenauer (D-Ore.)  Ron Paul (R-Texas)  Michael Capuano (D-Mass.)  Ed Perlmutter (D-Colo.)  Russ Carnahan (D-Mo.)  Ciro Rodriguez (D-Texas)  Julia Carson (D-Ind.)  Steven Rothman (D-N.J.)  William lacy Clay (D-Mo.)  Linda Sanchez (D-Calif.)  Steve Cohen (D-Tenn.)  Adam Schiff (D-Calif.)  Joseph Crowley (D-N.Y.)  Robert Scott (D-Va.)  William Delahunt (D-Mass.)  Adam Smith (D-Wash.)  Bob Filner (D-Calif.)  Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.)  Vito Fossella (R-N.Y.)  Edolphus Towns (D-N.Y.)  Raul Grijalva (D-Ariz.)  Melvin Watt (D-N.C.)  Luis Gutierrez (D-Ill.)  Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.)  Alcee Hastings (D-Fla.)  Robert Wexler (D-Fla.)  Michael Honda (D-Calif.)  Lynn Woolsey (D-Calif.)  Steve Israel (D-N.Y.)  Albert Wynn (D-Md.)  Peter King (R-N.Y.)  Don Young (R-Alaska) Ellen Taucher (D-Cal)
