Just a week after legislators in the US state of Michigan pushed through an online gambling bill in a late-night legislative session, the bill is dead.
All it needed was Michigan Governor Rick Snyder’s signature, but he decided to veto the bill. This effectively ends Michigan online gambling hopes until the next legislative session. The online gambling bill was one of 40 bills Snyder vetoed, according to Detroit News. In fact, every gaming-related bill got the axe. When asked why he acted against online gambling, Snyder claimed that a lack of clarity regarding budgeting and revenue was the issue.
