Senate approves sports betting item on November ballot

XGR-Sports Betting

PIERRE, S.D. – The Senate has passed a measure that would let voters decide whether to allow sports betting in South Dakota.

If the measure passes the House, voters will be asked in November whether to OK sports betting in Deadwood.

A similar proposal died last year in the House. Gov. Kristi Noem also opposed it last year.

The proposal requires a change to the state constitution, so it must be passed in the general election.

Several Native American tribes also operate casinos on tribal land.

Those casinos could also have sports betting if the measure passed.
