CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval has signed a bill into law designed to position the Silver State for Internet gambling.

AB258 gives the Nevada Gaming Commission until January to adopt
regulations to implement Internet gambling in the state.

Online gambling has been mired in controversy since the U.S. Justice Department indicted executives of three top online poker sites April 15, charging them with violating federal law. In its original form, AB258 would have prohibited state regulators from denying a license to existing online poker sites. That provision was deleted.

Assemblyman William Horne of Las Vegas says AB258 will make
Nevada a licensing model if and when the federal government legalizes online gambling.
