Two gambling-related bills have recently been reintroduced in the Michigan Legislature.

On January 18, 2017, State Representative Robert Kosowski (D-Westland) introduced House Bill No. 4060(HB 4060), which proposes to amend the Michigan Gaming Control and Revenue Act to authorize wagers on sporting events to be placed at the state’s commercial casinos. This mirrors legislation from 2016 also introduced by Representative Kosowski which did not make it out of committee during the last session.

In addition, on January 18, 2017, Senator Rick Jones (R-Grand Ledge) introduced Senate Bill No. 0035(SB 0035) which seeks to amend the “Traxler-McCauley-Law-Bowman Bingo Act” and to overhaul the Bingo Act’s provisions regulating charitable millionaire parties held within the state. Notably, a similar bill previously passed the Senate on December 9, 2015 but expired at the end of the legislative session.

Both bills have been referred to their respective Committee on Regulatory Reform.
