Assuming it passes and doesn't die before the end of 2012 lame duck(would have to be reintroduced in 2013), there is no way of knowing. Depends on how much bipartisan support there is for it(GOP House and Dem Senate, so we have to have bipartisan support), how well the bill is written(does anything need to be changed?), will the opt-out or opt-in add extra time, are any poker studies going to be ordered, and of course will any individuals/committees hold it up? Then, there is no way of knowing how long it will take for regulations to be set up or even who will be allow to regulate.
Would be nice if it moves like the Patriot Act, but the government seems to take freedoms away much faster than they give them back.
