A poll conducted last month revealed that 53 percent of California voters would side with legalizing online poker.  The state legislators were forced to can a vote on legalizing the activity after it was determined there would not be enough time on the current year calendar for a vote.

State Sen. Lou Correa, who sponsored the legislation, explained the benefits of having California as a hub for Internet poker.

"In terms of the revenue potential for California, it could be explosive. What we need to do now is cut a deal."
