An important hearing will take place in the California legislature on Monday that will have a major impact on the future of online poker in the state.
Monday will be the first of four scheduled hearings in the state that deals with the possibility of regulating online poker in California. It is slated to take place on Monday, April 27 at 1:30 Pacific time, in the Governmental Organization Committee.
While there are several other bills in play in California, this one (AB 431 sponsored by Assemblyman Adam Gray) has the easiest road to passage. The bill, because of the way it is written, only requires a majority vote to pass the legislature. Other bills under consideration would require a two-thirds majority.
If this bill fails to gain traction, it definitely would not be good for the future of online poker in the state, at least for this year.
You can learn more about the hearing from Online Poker Report.
If you want to show your support of online poker in California, we highly suggest you take a few minutes to tell elected officials in the state that you support regulation efforts. You can do that via CaliforniaOnlinePoker.com. And use the hashtag #AllinCA on Twitter.
