PHOENIX — A bipartisan coalition of legislators gave Gov. Doug Ducey a crucial victory Thursday as they approved his plan to expand off-reservation gaming in the state.
The 48-12 House on House Bill 2772 vote came despite concerns that the plan, crafted by the governor, effectively amounts to a giveaway of valuable gaming rights to the owners of the state’s sports franchises.
That’s because they would be the only ones who would be able to take wagers on the outcome of both professional and college sporting events.
