When the U.S. Supreme Court struck down a 1992 federal law prohibiting sports betting in May, many in Arizona saw an opportunity for the state to benefit.
Now Republican state Sen. Sonny Borrelli has introduced a bill that outlines what legal sports betting in Arizona could look like.
The bill, SB 1158, would allow any federally recognized tribe that has a tribe-state gaming compact to operate sports gambling.
The bill would allow tribes to offer sports betting not only in casinos, but also in certain establishments that have bar or beer and wine licenses through kiosks placed there.
