  • Connecticut Governor Ned Lamont issued this statement: “This agreement represents months of hard work and dedication to getting a deal that’s best for the residents of Connecticut and moves our state forward when it comes to the future of gaming".
  • According to Lamont’s release, the Mohegans would be able to offer iGaming and sports wagering, which would be taxed as 20% and 13.75%, respectively.
  • Tuesday featured a 7 hour hearing on the topic of sports betting. The committee did not vote on any of the bills.
  • The anti-gambling lobby was vocal, but it focused more on adding funds for problem gaming programs than on trying to stop the legislation.
