NC State Legislature May Take up Poker Bill

I found this little tid-bit in the Ashville (NC) Citizen-Times. On January 26, they published an article outlining the top 10 areas of legislative interest to western North Carolina. Number 10 went like this:
10) Indian gaming: State lawmakers could weigh in on whether poker is legal in North Carolina. If state lawmakers permit live poker games, then it increases the chances that such games could come to Harrah’s Cherokee Casino and Hotel.
More to come on this for sure. The whole article is here:
Update from the Durham Herald-Sun Feb 17, 2005:
"A court bid to legalize poker by branding it a game of skill rather than chance was postponed Thursday until March 10."
