Effort to legalize sports betting passes House Finance Committee
DENVER -- A new bill introduced to the Colorado House this week which would legalize sports gambling at casinos passed the House Committee Monday. “We know that people are betting illegally across the state of Colorado. If it’s already happening, it’s better to treat consumers fairly and to put it into a regulated marketplace,” said House Majority Leader Alec Garnett, who helped introduce the bill.
