ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Another push for sports betting legislation appears to be gaining momentum as Minnesota lawmakers on Wednesday announced a bipartisan legalization effort. Past attempts have failed to get much support in the Legislature and among the state’s tribes.

Republican and Democratic lawmakers in both chambers have a renewed interest in legalizing sports gambling statewide.

Thirty states and Washington, D.C., offer sports gambling and another three states have legalized it but aren’t yet operational.

A 2018 Supreme Court ruling opened the door for states to legalize betting on sports.
