What if Californians approve of sports betting initiatives

In November, Californians will likely face the question: Should sports betting be legalized?

And then, a little further on in their scrutiny, there’s a good chance they’ll be asked again: Should sports betting be legalized?

Yes. The odds are that two measures will appear in the November ballot to legalize sports betting. This has been reduced from earlier this year when four different initiatives were at stake.

Of the two remaining measures, one is already eligible for the November ballot and the other should be eligible shortly.

Here’s what each initiative does

The “California Sports Wagering Regulation and Unlawful Gambling Enforcement Act” is supported by a group of Native American tribes and is currently eligible for ballot. It would allow tribal casinos and the state’s four racecourses to offer sports betting. It would also allow tribal casinos to expand their gaming offerings to roulette and dice games.
