Maine Governor Takes No Action On Sports-Betting Bill, Leaving Status In Flux

Sports-betting legislation in Maine is in limbo after a ten-day window for Governor Janet Mills to sign the bill closed with no action.

Mills elected not to sign Senate Bill 553, a bill that would have opened up sports betting in the state to casinos, racetracks, off-track betting parlors, and federally-recognized Indian tribes, as well as allowing “qualified gaming entities” operating in other jurisdictions to obtain standalone licenses.

To meet that responsibility, Mills said she will “continue to review these bills and gather more information, and I look forward to acting on them at the beginning of the next legislative session.”
