Sports betting might be coming soon to the state of Arizona, but the wait will be a little longer than expected.

The discussion of SB 1158, a sports betting bill first introduced on Jan. 23, was postponed Feb. 7 at the Arizona Senate to a date to be determined later.

The bill brought forth by Republican Sen. Sonny Borrelli would introduce sports gambling to the state by giving the Native American tribes exclusive rights.

The Commerce and Public Safety Committee removed discussion for SB 1158 from the agenda because, Borrelli said, there needs to be revisions and amendments made before any vote.
