Push to al­low sports bet­ting in Vir­ginia

Daily Press (Sunday) - - Local News -

A leg­is­la­tor from Fair­fax wants to make sure Vir­ginia gets a piece of the sports-bet­ting pie. Sen. Mark Sick­les filed a bill he says would help “keep Vir­ginia’s money in Vir­ginia” by al­low­ing sports-bet­ting plat­forms like DraftKings to op­er­ate in the state. In May, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that bet­ting on pro­fes­sional and am­a­teur sports was le­gal and states could now es­tab­lish their own reg­u­lated sports bet­ting.
