The bill that could have brought online poker to the state of Hawaii has been shelved for the time being. The bill named HB2422 failed to even make it to the legislative floor of Hawaii’s state government. This adds Hawaii to the states of Iowa, Mississippi as well as the District of Columbia who’s poker bills have stalled or failed to get off the ground entirely. Needless to say this is troubling news for those who are desperately waiting to see some form of online poker legalized in the United States. The only state with any real momentum towards a state legalized online poker left is Nevada who started to put together regulations and rules that would govern potential Nevada online poker sites if and when they are legalized and allowed to come online.
