f this bill passes, daily fantasy sports website operators would have to conduct audits and prohibit employees from participating in the games.
"I see this as something that's currently happening in practice and just want to make sure that people's ability to keep doing something they enjoy doing is out there," state Rep. Tyler Vorpagel said.
Executive Director of Citizens Against Expanded Gambling Lorri Pickens expressed her concern about the larger implications of the bill, citing how online daily fantasy sports is targeting younger people.
"When you look at brick and mortar gambling, the youth do not do that," Pickens said. "They don't go into a casino physically and play poker, but they're very inclined to do things online. The industry does know this. This is their future."
Current state legislation doesn't explicitly address the legality of DFS allowing residents to access websites.
