DES MOINES, Iowa — (Associated Press) - Gov. Terry Branstad says he was willing to consider a measure being debated in the Legislature that would legalize Internet poker games.

Speaking at a news conference Monday, Branstad told reporters he would need to learn more about the proposal if it cleared the Legislature and reached his desk. But Branstad says many Iowans already play illegal poker games on the Internet from sites based outside the country.

During his earlier tenure as governor Branstad signed into law much of the legalized gambling law that's now on the books. He notes that Iowa is building its 18th casino and argues it is saturated with gambling.

He says that wouldn't deter him if the measure is approved because much of the Internet poker is already taking place.
