State gaming authorities in Nevada have released proposed regulations for Internet poker to be implemented if the federal government legalizes the activity.

The proposals include rules for the finding of entity suitability, technology approvals, audit and record-keeping, and customer enrollment.

From the GPWA:

Gaming Control Board Chairman Mark Lipparelli said the proposals were offered after the Nevada Legislature and Gov. Brian Sandoval approved Assembly Bill 258, which called for the agency to establish Internet poker regulations.

"Internet poker has become a multibillion-dollar business around the world," Lipparelli said in a statement.

"The technology supporting it, while not perfect, has improved dramatically since its introduction. Similar to our land-based requirements, Nevada will establish high standards giving players as much confidence as possible in the entities and technologies that might eventually gain approval," the statement also read.
