Indiana may consider regulating daily fantasy sports sites

December 17, 2015

Indiana lawmakers are considering the possibility of regulating daily fantasy sports sites.

State Rep. Alan Morrison, R-Terre Haute, says Hoosiers are currently allowed to play those sites, but the state has no control over who can offer the games.

Morrison says he will author a bill that would add basic consumer protectors and transparency to the sites. He also would like to see the fantasy firms register with the state and pay an annual fee, creating a new revenue stream for the state.

The Evansville Courier & Press  reported the popularity of daily fantasy sites has exploded as legal battles in several states attempt to determine whether the contests are legal and if they should be subject to regulation as a form of gambling.
