West Virginia Governor calls for slight changes to sports betting law

16 March 2018

(PRESS RELEASE) -- West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice said this week that the bill passed by the Legislature (SB451) permitting sports wagering will become law.

"After the U.S. Supreme Court issues its decision on sports wagering, to address any provisions of the legislation that might be in conflict, I will ask the Legislature to look at the advantages of partnering with the major sports leagues," Gov. Justice said. "I believe there could be real value to this partnership. I expect the Supreme Court to rule on this issue in the next few months.

"This approach will allow us to develop a relationship with all the major sports leagues so that it is beneficial to everyone."

Gov. Justice went on to say that "if there are issues that we can address" and make this "model legislation that the entire country can use and duplicate, we should do so. Again, nothing can happen until the Supreme Court issues their decision, but we want to be ready when they do."
