Michigan lawmakers adjourn without passing sports betting law

Michigan adjourned its legislative session this week without legalising sports betting, but there's still hope for the bill to become law by the end of 2018.

New York also failed to agree on its bill, although Rhode Island, New Jersey and Deleware are either taking bets already or expecting to do so shortly. 

The US Supreme Court repealed PASPA in May, prompting many states to examine their options before the start of the autumn NFL season.

Michigan's House passed a bill on 12 June, the first step to legalised sports betting. Michigan will have a second look after the legislature reconvenes in September, according to the SportsHandle website.

The proposed legislation aims to develop the relationship between the state and Indian tribes. Michigan lawmakers reportedly plan to spend their summer break working with tribes and other stakeholders to create a framework for sports betting in brick-and-mortar locations.

Despite lobbying efforts by professional sporting leagues, the bill doesn’t contain an “integrity fee".
