Sports betting in Tennessee
A Tennessee bill to legalize sports betting is progressing. A House committee advanced the legislation Tuesday to allow statewide mobile and interactive sports gambling, without brick-and-mortar betting locations. The University of Tennessee and Vanderbilt University asked for changes to the law to bar various people from betting: including college athletes, certain school officials and board members, college students and employees with access to confidential information, among others. The law also would outlaw bets on individual college athlete performance. Asked about the bill, Republican Gov. Bill Lee has said he opposes expanded gambling, but his administration sometimes works to align legislation more with his views. In addition, a Senate committee has cast a nonbinding vote against the bill, but it is scheduled for another committee's consideration.
