Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker has long been pushing for legalized sports betting, and on Feb. 28, state lawmakers took the first step to pushing through a bill that would make in-person and online wagering legal. It still has a long way to go, but it’s an optimistic sign for Massachusetts, which legal expert Daniel Wallach predicted would turn legal in 2020. Wallach’s reasoning? The state “does not have any unique legal barriers such as tribal compacts or constitutional prohibitions.” With a current session that extends through July 31, and New Hampshire breathing down its neck, expect Massachusetts to try to get something passed in 2020.
