Internet gambling bill in California doomed amid tribal dissent

A bill to legalize Internet poker in California appears to be dead amid tribal dissent, according to Poker News Report.

The lack of agreement prompted the Pechanga Band of Luiseno Indians to leave the California Nations Indian Gaming Association. And the California Online Poker Association, a coalition that includes tribes, continues to oppose the inclusion of horse racing associations in the bill.

"I believe SB 1463 is now likely unofficially dead," a lobbyist told Poker News Report.
