Online poker bill to be reviewed by the House

Posted:
DES MOINES (KWWL) -

Online poker is one step closer to coming to Iowa gambling operations.

A bill that would allow existing gambling operations in Iowa to offer internet poker has passed the Senate.

Supporters said residents already gamble online and the proposed bill would create oversight through new regulations.

It also would bring in additional state tax revenue.

The Senate approved the measure on a 29 to 20 vote.

The bill now goes to the House.
