Thursday December 31,2015 : CALIFORNIA ONLINE POKER AND D.F.S : EARLY MOVES IN 2016
Assembly committee gets legalization off to a fast start.
The usually well-informed and reliable Online Poker Report writer Chris Grove has tweeted that the California Assembly's Government Organisation Committee has scheduled a meeting on the legalization of online poker, sports betting and daily fantasy sports for January 6 2016, getting the year's gambling initiatives off to a fast start in California.
The tweet links to an extensive October interview in the Orange County Register with committee chairman Assemblyman Adam Gray which gave details of his plans (see here: http://www.legalsportsreport.com/5551/california-daily-fantasy-sports-bill/)
The January 6 meeting has also been flagged by Orange County Register reporter Ryan Kartje, who tweeted:
"Looks like Adam Gray's bill to regulate daily fantasy (AB1437) will be heard and voted on by CA's GO Committee on Jan. 6. Quick turnaround."
