Proposal to remove sunset clause in daily fantasy sports bill

News on 28 Apr 2018

An amendment that would remove the July 2018 “sunset” provision in a 2016 Massachusetts daily fantasy sports legalisation bill has passed in a committee and House budget vote Friday and now awaits action in the Senate.

Proposed by Representative Mark Cusack, the so far successful amendment has been applauded by DFS market leader DraftKings, which is based in the state.

If passed by the Senate, it effectively makes the legalisation of DFS permanent in Massachusetts, provided operators comply with state regulations.
