Interesting article on where Michigan stands with legal sports betting.....this article is from a few weeks ago in the Detroit News. The Governor & the state legislature does not have a clue on any of this. The only one that does it Brandt Iden, a congressman from the western side of the state who has been trying to get some sort of legislation passed for more than a year now. Former Governor Rick Snyder vetoed the bill because he was afraid the betting would cannibalize the lottery, which (supposedly) funds schools. Iden's defense is lottery players don't sports bet, and sports bettor do not play the lottery, which has been shown in NJ after they came online. Anyway, an interesting read that demonstrates the backwardness of Michigan.
