LAS VEGAS (AP) - The nation's gambling capital is taking steps to make sure it's not dealt out of the lucrative online poker market.

Sometime after the Nevada Legislature begins its four-month session on Monday, lawmakers are expected to take up a bill that would let online poker companies accept wagers from players in other states.

Such betting is essentially banned in most of the nation, but several states, including California and New Jersey, are weighing bills to ease restrictions.

Assembly Bill 5 is intended to position Nevada-based companies to quickly expand their customer base as the U.S. online poker market grows.

Gaming Control Board Chairman A.G. Burnett says interstate agreements could be an important moneymaker or the state.
