Legislation introduced by Rep John La Falce of New York would ban credit cards to pay for Internet gambling, and prohibit casinos from offering ATM machines and credit card advances next to gambling machines and tables.

The measures would also prohibit ATMs from being placed near race track betting windows and other areas where people gamble.

Experts give little likelihood the measures will pass.
