NEW YORK (AP) - A sponsor of sports betting legislation in New York says the bill likely would allow for in-person wagering at places like Yankee Stadium and Madison Square Garden.
Assemblyman Gary Pretlow said Friday that legislation he announced this week is being tweaked and will have the provision unless he receives strong opposition.
The Westchester County Democrat told a panel at Cardozo Law School that Madison Square Garden has expressed interest in having an on-site location where customers could bet.
The Supreme Court struck down a federal sports gambling ban last year. No stadiums or arenas in the several states that have since offered sports gambling have on-site betting operations, though Washington, D.C. approved gambling at stadiums and arenas in December.
New Jersey restricts in-person gambling to casinos and racetracks.
