Proponents of legalized sports betting in New Hampshire believe backing from the governor is giving their proposal a boost.
Republican Gov. Chris Sununu mentioned his support for allowing betting on sports games during his budget address earlier this month. Rep. Timothy Lang, who is sponsoring a bill to do just that, said the support was a pleasant surprise.
“We’re not creating a new industry here, we’re just brining an illicit industry into a legalized industry,” he told the Concord Monitor .
