CARSON CITY, Nev. -- A Nevada legislative panel has amended and approved a bill that would pave the way for Internet gambling.
An amended version of AB258 directs the Nevada Gaming Commission to begin drafting rules to regulate online poker, but stipulates that Internet gambling would not be implemented until sanctioned by Congress or the Justice Department.
The measure was approved Tuesday by the Assembly Judiciary Committee and now moves to the Assembly floor.
