Colorado governor vetoes bill allowing casinos to provide lines of credit
Colorado Governor Jared Polis has vetoed SB23-259, a bill that sought to authorize casinos to offer lines of credit to customers
Colorado Governor Jared Polis has vetoed SB23-259, a bill that would have permitted casinos to provide lines of credit to customers, with amounts of $1,000 or more.
The proposal aimed to attract VIP customers from neighboring states but was rejected by the governor due to concerns about exploiting individuals with gambling addictions.
Governor Polis emphasized the issue of obtaining meaningful consent from individuals with gambling disorders and likened it to gaining consent from someone under the influence of substances.
