Vermont On Cusp Of Fantasy Sports Regulation

Vermont is set to follow neighboring New York and Massachusetts in regulating popular fantasy sports contests after Green Mountain State lawmakers passed a bill last week to register and tax fantasy operators.

The Vermont General Assembly approved Senate Bill 136 last Friday.

The measure now goes to Republican Governor Phil Scott, whose spokeswoman, Rebecca Kelley, did not return a request for comment on whether Scott intends to sign it into law.

SB 136 would require fantasy sports operators to register with the Vermont Secretary of State’s Office and pay the agency an annual registration fee of $5,000.
