AB 1437

Gray (D)History

Would enact the Internet Fantasy Sports Games Consumer Protection Act, which would require a person or entity to apply for, and receive, a license from the Department of Justice prior to offering an Internet fantasy sports game for play in California. The bill would require the department to issue a license to a person or entity that applies for a license if the person or entity satisfies specified requirements, including, among others, that the applicant is of good character, honesty, and integrity. The bill would also require a person to register with a "licensed operator" prior to participating in an "Internet fantasy sports game" on an "authorized Internet Web site," as those terms are defined.
