    Default California to consider online poker bill Wednesday

    Assembly Bill 167, authored by Assemblyman Reginald Jones-Sawyer, will be discussed Wednesday in the California Assembly Governmental Organization Committee starting at 1:30 p.m PST.

    The legislation was referred to the committee in February of last year, and a hearing was being planned in July before Jones-Sawyer decided to cancel it. A different California online poker bill advanced out of the same legislative committee in April. It was the first time any California lawmaker had ever voted on an online poker bill, but no momentum was realized. The proposal that was voted on remained a shell bill for the rest of the year.
    So, we could have an idea by the end of the day what the future of California's online poker market might look like.

    Or, like most things in U.S. politics, we'll probably know nothing -- and somehow we'll know less.

    Maybe if PokerStars, or Amaya nowadays, pours another billion to lobby this.

    There's always a big to-do about California being the next big state to regulate online poker each year, and it's always taken down because there's simply too much opposition. Unless something drastic changes, I don't think California will regulate the industry until a number of other states do.
