With the help of California’s tribal casinos, a measure to ban Internet gambling in California was tabled by a Senate subcommittee for the balance of the year.

Tribes had been nervously watching the bill as it passed the state Assembly and advanced to the Senate.

A spokesman for one tribe said, “We need to preserve our options,” as they relate to online gaming.
