Minnesota lawmaker says "there's a better chance than not’ that sports betting passes this legislative session

Jan 24, 2022

A state lawmaker who supports legalizing sports betting thinks the odds are good that the Legislature will pass a bill this session.

Rep. Pat Garofalo (R-Farmington) told MPR News host Cathy Wurzer that a majority of U.S. states now have legalized some form of sports gambling. He said lawmakers in Minnesota would need to decide who would be able to offer sports gambling at what facilities and what taxes and regulations would apply.
