Sports betting sponsor solves potential problem, increasing odds for legalization in Minnesota

Rep. Zack Stephenson said he's worked out a deal with tribes, charities on pulltabs

The House sponsor of a sports betting bill announced a deal Tuesday to settle an electronic pulltabs matter that had the potential to scuttle the entire gambling legalization effort.

Rep. Zack Stephenson, DFL-Coon Rapids, said the arrangement he brokered resolves the concerns of the Allied Charities of Minnesota (ACM) that runs charitable pulltab operations in bars and restaurants throughout the state.

"We still have a lot of work to do to pass a sports betting bill, but this is a very important step in the right direction," Stephenson said.
