A bill circulating in the California Assembly would ban most forms on Internet gambling in the state.

AB1229, which won approval in the Assembly’s Government Operations Committee, would make online gambling a misdemeanor and would fine online casinos that took bets from California players.

The bill would also allow law enforcement to go after financial institutions that assist online gambling in California through account wagering or advanced deposit wagering.
