Delay to Vote on Bill for Regulating Online Poker in California

30 June 2010 by Devon Chappell

With all this talk about the State of California on the move to legalize online gambling (at least online poker rooms, that is), it looks like the detractors, or rather, those who would oppose said regulation, have gotten wind of the building momentum and have surged forward with a resistant blast of their own.

With the bill to regulate internet poker due up for a vote yesterday, and considering that vote never took place, it appears that resistance to regulate online gambling in California is having it’s way. But don’t let that make you think the move to get the bill passed is a “dead process”, says Senator Rob Wright.

Senator Wright is an important name to know in this unfolding story, for it was Mr. Wright who was largely responsible for derailing the vote for another time. However, it was also Senator Wright who put the bill together in the first place. So, in as much as derailing the vote may come across as a delay tactic or strategy to build opposition, Senator Wright was quick to avoid sparking doubt with others in support of regulation by stating, “Just because we don’t do this today doesn’t mean people are going to stop playing Internet poker.”

In other words, it really does look as if California is going to regulate online poker. With 10% of the revenue generated by online poker rooms going back to the State – which, needless to say – is in dire need of deficit curbing revenue, the prospects to make online poker rooms legal in the most populous state in America.
