What happens if Californians pass sports betting initiatives?

In November, Californians are likely to face the question: Should sports betting be legalized?

And then, a little further down in their bulletin, there’s a good chance they’ll be asked again: Should sports betting be legalized?

Yes. Two measures to legalize sports betting are likely to appear in the November vote. This has been curtailed from earlier this year, when four different initiatives were in play.

Of the other two measures, one is already eligible to vote in November, and the other is expected soon.

Here is what each initiative does

The California Sports Betting Regulation and the Gambling Act are backed by a group of Native American tribes and are currently eligible to vote. This will allow tribal casinos and the country’s four horse racing tracks to offer sports betting. This will also allow tribal casinos to expand their gambling offerings to roulette and dice.
