That's what the new blog, Capital Chronicles, says.
The bomb, the threat of US anti-gaming legislation, appears more Vanuatu than Iran-like. Not only is there too little legislative time in the Senate to read and pass the proposed bill but said bill was already being watered down. This speaks to the question is a huge gambling nation like the United States really going to put a moral "anti-scourge" law on the books?
So maybe new laws might not make it on the books. But if you run one of these companies, you might still want to avoid any layovers in the US.
