A legislative committee is beginning to flesh out the notion of legal sports betting in Vermont, which is one of a shrinking number of U.S. states without any regulated channels for event wagering.

The Vermont General Assembly’s Sports Betting Study Committee spent time on Tuesday hearing from government bureaucrats, an operator, and a sports bettor on the subject of retail and online sports betting.

Vermont currently has no legal sports betting, making it the only New England state to have not authorized any form of event wagering. Both Maine and Massachusetts took steps this past legislative session to legalize sports betting, but Vermont politicians only recently formed their committee and continue to mull over the issue.
