    Default California horse racing could get $57 million in online poker deal

    The draft bill states that of the first $60 million collected each year, 95 percent will go into a California Horse Racing Internet Poker Account, which would contribute to purses, commissions, and incentive awards to be disbursed by racing associations or fairs, and pensions for jockeys and parimutuel employees.
    In California, the racetracks and the tribes haven't always gotten along swimmingly.

    Default

    A draft version of the bill is now available. Notably, the bill states that anyone in California who plays on an unlicensed site (casino, poker, sportsbook, etc.) could be charged with a felony. Seems unlikely that bit survives if this ever gets a vote, but stranger things have happened.
