Georgia fails to pass sports betting bill as legislative session ends
| By Marese O'Hagan
A re-introduced bill that would amend Georgia’s State Constitution to allow for sports betting was passed by the state House yesterday (4 April), but failed to pass the Senate as the legislative session expired.
Senate Resolution 135 was first introduced in 2021, and was initially passed by the House Committee on Economic Development & Tourism.
It was re-introduced in 2022 and had to be passed by the House and the Senate in the current session.
