By Trisha Ahmed THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Amid ongoing efforts to legalize sports betting in North Dakota, and expand it beyond the tribal casinos, where it’s already allowed, a House panel heard arguments Monday over a measure to let voters decide the issue next year. “Passage of this resolution does not legalize sports betting,” Republican Rep. Greg Stemen, of Fargo, told the Judiciary Committee. “It simply allows the voters of North Dakota to determine whether they want to legalize sports betting when they vote in the November 2024 general election.” A change to the state constitution is required to legalize sports betting. If passed, voters would decide whether to authorize that change. Then, in 2025, lawmakers could decide how exactly to authorize, license and regulate sports betting in North Dakota.
