Gambling nationwide? Joseph Califano wouldn't mind.

The nation's former Secretary of Health, Education and Welfare said that Congress should take a closer look at federal regulation of the gaming industry.

"Gambling is exploding across the country," Califano said. "New York is just the latest example of it."

Federal regulation of the gaming industry is minimal because that responsibility has fallen to the individual states.
