Sports gambling in Arizona? Still illegal until state lawmakers vote otherwise; Rose Law Group Founder and President Jordan Rose comments. While the Dept. of Gaming says it’s “business as usual” as far as the illegality of sports gambling is concerned, AZCentral reports that a “tweet from Gov. Doug Ducey hinted at a possible push” in the other direction. And in Rose Law Group ReporterJordan Rose says this: “Talk about an extraordinary confluence of events. The State is searching for a sustainable revenue stream for school funding, the gaming compacts with the Native American Communities come up for renewal in a few years, and now the U.S. Supreme Court says a State may decide to permit sports wagering.

The revolutionary foster care law buried in February’s federal spending deal; Kaine Fisher, Rose Law Group Partner, Director of Family Law Department, comments on the ‘Family First’ legislation. Governing:“Congress passed drastic child welfare reforms that aim to reduce the removal of kids from their homes. But some worry they will cost states and harm children.” Kaine Fisher tells Rose Law Group Reporter: “I am anxious to see if this new funding for states somehow increases the success rate of keeping children in their homes by affording families the financial support to tackle problems before children are removed from the home.” The report and more from Kaine here: http://bit.ly/2KrtrXw
