Sports betting continued its march through the US state of Arizona yesterday when the Rules Committee approved it with amendments and the bill will now head to the House floor for a vote.
The latest amendment changes the wording in the fee structure section of the daily fantasy sports part of the bill. Application fees for both DFS and sports betting operator licences are not spelled out in the bill and would be left to the Arizona Department of Gaming to determine.
According to Sports Handle, lawmakers are also leaving the applicable tax rate to the discretion of the regulator. The Senate companion bill is set for a hearing in the Appropriations Committee on Wednesday after being held over by the Senate Commerce Committee last week.
