Minnesota Sports Betting
In February 2019, a sports betting bill was unveiled which proposed to define and legalize “sports pools” within state lines. A five-member Minnesota Sports Wagering Commission was part of the proposal which would have allowed the federally recognized tribes in the state to be licensed to offer on-site mobile wagering platforms and retail sportsbooks.
Since then, multiple sports betting bills were opposed or otherwise stalled.
In 2022, Representative Zack Stephenson pushed a bill through the House, but it hit a huge roadblock in the Senate as an amendment proposing the inclusion of two horse racing tracks proved to be a deal breaker for the tribes who want exclusive rights to offer sports betting. The legislature adjourned with no resolution but the legislation is slated to be taken up again.
