Washington Senate Labor And Commerce Committee Passes Sport Betting Bill

The Washington Senate Labor and Commerce Committee has passed a bill that would legalise land-based and online sports betting in the state.

Introduced last month, House Bill 2638, along with its companion Senate Bill 6394, would permit in-person sports wagering at tribal casinos and cardrooms, as well as mobile on-premises betting.

The Senate Committee yesterday (February 24) gave its approval to the bill and it will now move forward to the Senate’s Ways and Means Committee for further discussion.

Approval from the Senate Committee comes after Washington’s House last week also passed the bill by a conclusive vote of 83-14. This was primarily due to the bill being sponsored by 20 Representatives.
