Three bills to potentially legalize Texas sports betting will be heard for the first time this week in the House of Representatives State Affairs Committee.
On Wednesday, March 22, at 10:30 a.m. CST, three bills to legalize sports betting will be heard by the State Affairs Committee for the first time since being introduced. Two intertwined bills seek to legalize “destination resorts,” casino gaming, and sports betting in the Lone Star State, while the third bill seeks to only legalize online sports betting.
Lawmakers will consider the bills and their proposals to place casinos and sports betting on the general election ballot in November 2023.
