Michigan sports betting bill draft unveiled ahead of feedback deadline Brian Pempus, MIBets · June 28, 2019 at 2:59 pm Policymakers in Michigan are working on the seventh draft of the upcoming sports betting legislation. MI Bets obtained a copy of the latest version of the bill that stakeholders have been asked to submit feedback on by July 11. The legislation is from state Rep. Brandt Iden, one of the most respected gaming policymakers in the country. Iden, a Republican, has been seeking to pass gaming expansion legislation in the Wolverine State for the past several years. He was on the verge of doing so last year, before the former governor vetoed the iGaming legislation that reached his desk shortly before the New Year. The sports betting legislation has not been introduced yet, but it could be filed in a matter of days after the July 11 feedback deadline, depending on stakeholder feedback.
