Georgia Senate Committee Revives Online Sports Betting Bill for Last-Ditch Attempt at Legalization
The Georgia Senate Economic Development and Tourism Committee revived a proposal to legalize online sports betting, though its prospects of passage into law remain uncertain
The Georgia Senate Economic Development and Tourism Committee has revived a proposal to legalize online sports betting in the state, but its passage into law remains uncertain.
The amended House Bill 237 would legalize online betting by early 2024 at the latest, without requiring a voters' referendum to amend the state constitution.
The move comes as a last-ditch effort by lawmakers to legalize sports betting before the legislative session ends, and is in the hands of the Senate for approval.
If passed, the House of Representatives will also need to approve it before it can become law.
