Four online poker hearings on schedule, the first held this Wednesday - California
Assemblymen in California are actively working on online poker market legalization via law proposal. Seemingly, all conditions are in place to follow the path of Nevada, Delaware and New Jersey, the US three States where ipoker businesses are fully regulated and legalized. The latest step to reach for California is the passing of the bill that will eventually legalize the market. Related discussions about the matter are scheduled from this week. Actually, four hearings are on the menu, the first being slated to take place this Wednesday, April 22, to discuss online poker and internet gaming regulation. Obvious as it is, such initiative is a positive sign as an open door for ipoker regulation in the most-populated state in the US. The first hearing will deal with AB 431, a bill introduced in February by Assembly Member Adam Gray. As a reminder, AB 431 would give the go-ahead to the operation of internet-based poker rooms within the state, while placing a great focus on licensing process for individual or gambling companies willing to invest in internet poker operation.
A second hearing will be held on May 20 to discuss the "Overview of Gambling in California - Legality, Authorization and Regulation". The third is scheduled on June 24, during which the "The legality of Internet Poker - How Prepared is California to Regulate It?_ will be the main topic of discussion.The fourth and final hearing to be held on July 8 will address two bills, namely the AB 167 (submitted by Rep. Mike Gatto in December 2014) and AB 9 (Rep. Reggie Jones-Sawyers bill submitted in January 2015).
