Brazil’s Senate Agency has confirmed that project 2,234/2022, which seeks to determine federal rules for land-based gambling activities, will be debated by the Constitution and Justice Commission (CCJ) of the Senate on 17 April.

As reported by SBCNoticias, “Bill (PL) 2.234/2022 was presented two years ago by the now former deputy Renato Vianna to authorise ‘among other modalities’, the legalisation of casinos and bingos, horseracing, and jogo do bicho.”
