New Hampshire legislature passes sports betting bill

14 June 2019

A bill to regulate sports betting in New Hampshire is headed to the Governor Chris Sununu after the state’s House of Representatives concurred with the amended bill returned by the Senate.

House Bill 480, filed in January by Representative Timothy Lang, was passed by the House in March, and was then approved by the Senate in May.

However, due to a number of amendments made in the upper chamber of the New Hampshire legislature, it had to be returned to the House for Representatives to approve the tweaks before it was transferred to Governor Sununu.

The Senate amended the legislation to cap the number of mobile betting operators at five, and to set a limit on ten retail sportsbooks from operating at any time.
