Michigan Could See Renewed Online Gambling Push
Michigan state Senator Mike Kowall says he’s ready to make another push for his online gambling bill in the state legislature.
Kowall first introduced the bill in March and while it was approved by the Senate’s Regulatory Reform Committee, it has not been moving in the legislature.
According to reports, Kowall has been working on amendments to the bill to gain more support, but details on those amendments haven’t been released.
The bill originally only made online gaming legal in the state with few other provisions. The bill would let the Michigan Gaming Control Board set regulations for online gaming.
The bill does allow land-based casinos as well as tribal casinos to offer online gambling sites, provided they comply with geolocation and age verification procedures, as well as any other requirements set forth by the Gaming Control Board.
