Illinois Lawmaker Sponsors DFS Legislation

Illinois State Rep. Michael Zalewski is sponsoring legislation in the state that would exempt fantasy sports from state gambling laws according to Northern Public Radio.  It would also characterize Daily Fantasy Sports as a game of skill.

He said it would help small businesses like SideLeague, a fantasy sports company based in Illinois that current doesn’t offer games in the state right now.

“So when you couple fantasy football, which is something everybody loves, with a bill that will grow Illinois jobs and Illinois’ economy, this should be something that Democrats and Republicans in Illinois can agree on together and move forward on,” Zalewski said.
