North Dakota Senate kills sports betting bill

News

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — North Dakota’s Republican-led Senate has killed legislation to allow legal gambling on college and professional sports.

The Senate killed the House bill 38-7 on Monday with no debate. The measure passed the GOP-led House last month, after it failed but was reconsidered in a second vote.

North Dakota was one of many states attempting to capitalize on the U.S. Supreme Court’s lifting of a federal ban on sports gambling.

Backers say sports betting would generate revenue for charities and the state. Opponents believe it would cause more gambling addiction problems.
