First Legal U.S. Online Poker in …California?

By Matt Kaufman, Rakeback.com Poker News Staff Writer

California Online PokerThe California Online Poker Association has launched a high profile campaign in an attempt to convince the California Legislature to pass Senate Bill 40, written by State Senator Lou Correa.

The objective of the bill is to legalize and tax online poker, and ultimately bring hundreds of millions of dollars to a state that is desperate for funds.

If the bill passes, intrastate poker sites could be hosted by entities with California gaming licenses.

The Commerce Casino, Bicycle Club, Hollywood Park Casino and several American Indian gaming operators are in favor of the bill, although many other American Indian tribes are strictly opposed. They believe that the legalization of online poker could take customers away from their brick-and-mortar operations.

The Assembly’s Governmental Organization Committee will hold a hearing on the subject on August 24th where both sides of this debate will have a chance to make their case.

Other U.S. locations that have recently explored the possibility of intrastate internet gambling are New Jersey and Washington, D.C.

With legislators searching frantically for new sources of revenues without taxing citizens, perhaps we’ll soon see a day where Americans can play the game they love with the government’s full approval.
