California Senator Proposes New Gambling Bill Amendments

22 August 2013

California Senator Lou Correa has recently proposed a reclassification of a regulation which will allow online poker in the state, the new amendment being expected to take effect as soon as it is approved by legislature. The bill was reclassified by Correa as an “urgency bill” which is meant to legalize online poker for California residents on internet sites which will be run by Native American tribes or card clubs that already operate casinos. The senators claimed that this new endeavor is a result of several discussions with Native American tribes based in California which have participated in this process during the last few months.

Similar bills have been introduced by lawmakers in California for the past three years, but none of them have been enacted into law, mainly because of the opposition from tribes who do not wish to set up gambling sites. Some tribes have commented that they will oppose the creation of online gaming sites which could ruin their land based operations.

Correa expressed the idea that he has gained the support of a Native American tribe which already owns a casino in Highland. On the other hand, several lawmakers are saying that Correa’s proposal might not come to fruition this year. CasinoWebScripts have developed an impressive collection of games suitable for any operator who seeks to start a white label casino.
