Morongo Tribe Shelves CA Online Poker Regulatory Push

September 10, 2009 (CAP Newswire) — The main party behind the recent initiative to come up with a new, UIGEA-friendly way to legalize and regulate online poker within California, the Morongo Band of Mission Indians, has announced that its actions in this area have been halted for the rest of 2009.
