Gambling and the Law: California Breakthrough

By David G. Schwartz on June 28, 2010 12:00 PM | Permalink

California is about to become the test on whether politics really is the art of the possible.

At the end of May, State Senator Roderick ("Rod") D. Wright (D-Inglewood) introduced SB 1485, inartfully named, "The Internet Gambling Consumer Protection and Public-Private Partnership Act of 2010." SB 1485 would authorize intra-state online poker and other "authorized games" in California.

In the past, attempts to legalize Internet gaming in California have been stymied by fears of federal intervention, and opposition from politically powerful Indian gaming tribes.

But times have changed. The right-wing ideologues of President George W. Bush's federal Department of Justice have been replaced by centralist prosecutors, who do not feel they have a duty to tell states what their public policies should be on gambling.
