Local TN, VA Reps Not Optimistic on Sports Betting

Even though the Supreme Court has given the green light to sports betting, dont expect to be placing bets in Tennessee or Virginia anytime soon…at least if local lawmakers have their say.

Tennessee senator Jon Lundberg told News Channel 11 that he has not “heard talk about gambling being a missed opportunity in Tennessee.”

In Virginia, delegate Terry Kilgore told the TV station that he doesn’t expect it to pass there, either…saying similar bills have never made it out of committee.
