Swedish Committee Gives Bill Green Light

A Swedish parliamentary committee has given its stamp of approval to the bill that will reform the country’s gambling market, paving the way for a final vote in parliament this week.

In an opinion published on Friday, the Committee on Cultural Affairs gave a green light to the bill that will introduce online gambling licences in Sweden for the first time.

A debate on the legislation is scheduled to take place this week on Thursday June 7, and will most likely immediately be followed by a vote in parliament.

In its opinion, the committee rejected six proposals put forward by members of parliament to amend the bill.

One of the proposals suggested retaining the state-owned monopoly on gambling.
