Legalization in California has two hurdles: It would likely require a change to the state constitution, and all gaming is controlled by tribes. On June 27, we got a surprise: California assemblyman Adam Gray and State Senator Bill Dodd introduced a sports betting bill. The legislation calls for a November 2020 ballot question, but would need two-thirds support from the legislature to be put on the ballot. And while 18 tribes said they would be interested in backing the measure, it still appears to be a longshot to happen in 2020, especially since one million signatures are needed for a ballot initiative and it's hard to get signatures during a pandemic. Update: The aforementioned California sports betting bill will be discussed in the Senate on June 2, 2020.
