Colorado Governor signs sports betting bill

30 May 2019

Colorado Governor Jared Polis has signed off on a bill that would legalise sports betting in the state, but the measure must now be put to voters in order to come into effect.

HB19-1327 was only introduced on April 18 but quickly passed through the state’s legislative progress, securing approval from both the House and Senate, and now the Governor.
