Restoration of America's Wire Act Fails in Congress

13 December 2014

US politicians have declined to attach the Restoration of America’s Wire Act to the CRomnibus spending bill, which will be used to fund the government next year.

There had been widespread speculation that House Republicans would attach the bill in an attempt to appease gambling magnate Sheldon Adelson, who donated heavily to their campaigns this year. Fortunately, that speculation turned out to be false, and it appears that the RAWA will not be discussed until next year at the earliest.
