A bill to allow fans 21 and older to bet on professional sports teams, NASCAR and pro golfing events at venues on and off reservations statewide is advancing with bipartisan support at the Arizona Legislature.
The bill also could allow electronic keno machines in some fraternal and veterans organizations, fantasy sports league betting, and mobile and online betting, all currently illegal in the state.
The main sponsor, Rep. Jeff Weninger (R-Chandler), said the measure could generate revenue for the state and tribes and lower the tax burden on citizens and businesses.
