A third online poker bill introduced - California

So far, California is struggling to find a common ground for a legalised online poker market like Nevada, Delaware and New Jersey now have. A new online poker bill, the third of its kind, has just emerged this week; the first being submitted by Assemblyman Mike Gatto in December (AB 9), the second was introducted by Assemblyman Reggie Jones-Sawyer in January (AB 167). Named “SB 278 and AB 431”, this third draft law was introduced on Thursday by State Senator Isadore Hall and Assemblyman Adam Gray. As a reminder, both men are influential members in their respective institution, and are charmen in their legislative house’s Governmental Organization Committee. That being said, their joint bills are more likely to be passed.

No futher details of these ipoker bills are released so far. Despite all this, the whole California’s poker community expects that it will of great mean compared to the previous ones. Actually, Hall and Gray have to thoroughly deal with the two main issues that block California’s online poker regulation process, namely the "Bad Actor clause " and horse racing participation. In fact, the two previous bills have literally split California’s gaming industry into two different factions: the first is made up of Morongo, San Manuel, Commerce, Hawaiian Gardens and The Bicycle, all backing Jones-Sawyer’s bill with softened bad-actor language and tracks’ participation, the second includes Pechanga and Agua Caliente, supporting Gatto and the rather tough bad actor clause with no consideration to horse racing.
