Chairman: Ronnie Jones

Is sports betting permitted online?

No. A bill that would have introduced on-track sports betting was soundly defeated in the state legislature, so online sports betting looks to be some way off.

 

Is there any specific legislation for daily fantasy sports?

Almost. A bill has passed the state house and the state senate in 2018, but now needs to go to referendum in November.

 

What legislation, if any, is currently pending?

Just the ongoing DFS legislation.
