Schuring noted the committee will meet again today at 10 a.m. to hear testimony on the bill. An additional meeting has been scheduled for Tuesday, June 15, at a time to be determined to take up amendments and to hear additional testimony. The updates include the following:

Introduced a month ago, the bill includes two types of sports betting licenses. Type A licenses will include state entities that have the ability to bank a bet, such as the state’s 11 casinos and racinos. Type B licenses will be for future brick-and-mortar sportsbooks. Twenty licenses of each type will be available for interested parties. A 10% tax rate will be set on sports betting revenue. Source saturdaytradition.com

Both Type A and Type B licenses will allow for online sports betting partnerships. These partnerships will be decided by the free market and no special considerations will be made for any entities in the process.
