The Wire Act complements other federal bookmaking statutes, such as the Travel Act (interstate travel in aid of racketeering enterprises, including gambling), the Interstate Transportation of Wagering Paraphernalia Act, and the Illegal Gambling Business Act (requires a predicate state law violation). Florida laws also protect against domestic violence occurring between individuals who currently cohabitate or who formerly cohabitated together in the same household.The types of crimes qualifying as domestic violence under Florida law include assault and aggravated assault, battery and aggravated battery, sexual assault and sexual battery, stalking and aggravated stalking, kidnapping, and others.Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law.

In analyzing the first element, the legislative history of the Wire Act seems to support the position that casual bettors would fall outside of the prosecutorial reach of the statute. It does not go after the causal gambler who bets on a race. 7039, 87th Cong., 1st Sess.(1961)  United States v.
During the House of Representatives debate on the bill, Congressman Emanuel Celler, Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee stated "[t]his bill only gets after the bookmaker, the gambler who makes it his business to take bets or to lay off bets. That type of transaction is not within the purvue of the statute." In Baborian, the federal district court concluded that Congress did not intend to include social bettors within the umbrella of the statute, even those bettors that bet large sums of money and show a certain degree of sophistication. Some courts have construed the second element concerning transmission to mean just the "sending" of information and not the receipt thereof. Other courts have interpreted the term "transmission" more broadly to include both parties using a wire communication facility.
