DENVER (AP) — Colorado's Legislature has approved a ballot question asking voters if sports gambling should be legalized.

The Senate voted 27-8 on Friday to send the bipartisan bill to Gov. Jared Polis.

If voters approve, a constrained Colorado sports betting market could be operating by 2020. State tax revenue initially would be an estimated $10 million.

Voters would be asked whether to apply a 10% flat tax on net sports betting proceeds. If approved, businesses can apply for licenses. The question comes in the form of a tax hike request because any Colorado tax increase, by law, must be approved by voters.
