Legalization of fantasy sports betting in Illinios delayed

Illinois lawmakers are still trying to craft the proposal to legalize daily fantasy sports betting in the Prairie State, causing the legalization to be postponed. This affects sports betting sites such as DraftKings and FanDuel.

 

 

Illinois is among several states with pending legislation this year on whether to regulate daily fantasy sports betting. Lawmakers are trying to get out committees before Friday the 8th, but Democratic State Representative Michael Zalewski asked for an extension Wednesday to hear the bill later.

 

 

Democrats plan to introduce a scrutiny to how the state funds public schools. The proposal would shift money from richer districts to poorer districts.
