Governor Hogan Signs Legislation to Legalize Sports Betting in Maryland

Governor Hogan signed 226 bills into law today, including legislation to legalize sports betting in the State of Maryland.

According to the Washington Post, “Under the sports betting bill, a commission will be created to review applications for licenses to sports wagering facilities and mobile sports wagering. Maryland is the last jurisdiction in the Washington region to legalize sports betting.”

It is estimated that sports betting will generate close to $20 million annually, the majority of which would go towards education.
