While the tight presidential race had Americans all over the country sweating through Tuesday night, sports gambling legislation passed comfortably in three states: Maryland, South Dakota, and Louisiana. While this appears to be great news for expanding sports bettors' rights everywhere, the legislation passed did not go nearly far enough to educate voters on the specifics for cast informed votes. All three propositions left critical details open that will determine how sports bettors are treated. South Dakota legalized gambling only on the Native American reservation, where all of the state's casinos are located, likely limiting government oversight. In Louisiana, the regulatory framework and tax structure are completely undecided and will be up to the state legislature, not the people, to decide.
