Lobby for gambling legalization in Brazil intensifies
Pressure in Brazilian Congress grows as government proposes new taxation on sports betting
The proposal by the Brazilian government to create a PM to tax sports betting is sparking lobbying for the legalization of electronic games, casinos, and bingos in Congress.
The government's proposal is expected to generate up to BRL 15 billion annually, but there is pressure to legalize other types of games, which supporters argue will also generate revenue for the country. However, the Chamber President threatens to set up a Parliamentary Inquiry Commission to discuss the issue.
