New York Online Poker Bill Not Dead Yet

Sep 14, 2017

The online poker bill was passed in the Senate on June 13 and Assemblyman J. Gary Pretlow advanced it through his Racing, Wagering and Gaming Committee two days later. Sadly the bill did not advance to Governor Cuomo's desk during the current session.

Pretlow indicated that because New York has adopted a "carry-over policy" for bills in a legislative term the bill could be addressed earlier in the January 2018 session. New online poker bills will not need to be introduced. The 2017 bills will automatically carry over to the second year of the legislative session.

This eliminates the need for an introductory period for the bills and lets them start where they left off, according to Pretlow. The bill will begin the year in the Codes Committee, still needing to pass through Ways and Means, then Rules to get on the Assembly floor. It will need to be voted on again.
