Colorado Governor Signs Off on Sports Betting Bill

Colorado Governor Jared Polis has signed a bill authorizing sports betting to be permitted in the state, however, the measure must now be placed on a voter referendum this November.  This process all but ensures there won't be any sportsbooks in operation during the 2019 NFL regular season.  

HB19-1327 was only introduced on April 18 and approved in both the House and Senate.  It includes taxation of operators at 10%.

Should sports gambling become legalized, sports betting would only be permitted in the state's three existing casinos.  These casinos would also have the option to develop a mobile app that can be used anywhere within the state.
