CHICAGO (AP) — The Illinois Gaming Board is seeking comments and suggestions on shaping the state’s newly legalized sports betting industry.
The Gaming Board announced Tuesday that it had opened a public comment period. It will end Sept. 27. The board wants comments from the public, the gambling industry and others in advance of the rule-making process.
Sports wagering was legalized by a law signed June 28. Gaming Board Administrator Marcus Fruchter says the comment period is “an important step in a process to ethically and expeditiously establish a regulatory framework” for sports betting.
The board will post all comments received on its website after the close of the comment period.
