ATLANTA (AP) — A Georgia Senate committee has revived a proposal to legalize sports betting, although its prospects of becoming law remain uncertain. The Senate Economic Development and Tourism Committee amended an unrelated bill to legalize online sports betting by early 2024 at the latest. The bill would place sports betting under the state lottery and legalize it without asking voters to amend the state constitution. The move comes late in the session, after proposals in both the House and Senate failed earlier.
