Texas Sports Teams Back Mobile Sports Betting Bills
Texas mobile sports betting hopes are getting bigger as the Texas Sports Betting Alliance has announced its support for the pair of bills that could draw bipartisan backing. Bill 715 and Senate Joint Resolution 39 proposed by State Sen. Lois Kolkhorst would offer transparent licensing while attempting to reign in offshore betting in the Lone Star state. HB 1942 and HJR 102 proposed by State Rep. Jeff Leach, offers an identical strategy to Kolkhorst’s. Both bills have now been backed by the Texas Rangers (MLB), Dallas Cowboys (NFL), the Houston Texans (MLB), and other sports franchises across the state. The push for legal mobile sports betting was halted in that past years but offers promise as more begin to back the efforts.
