    sports gaming

    This stock could really take off if sports gaming comes to Delaware. If the The Legislators push it through it could me big bucks for the state. The Casinos opening in Pa and Md
    will take customers could see a short term drop in the slot take. This should be at the top of Joe Bidens to do list
    Legalize Sports Gaming.

    • Joe Biden would have nothing to do with this. This is a issue at the state government level.

      Delaware is one of only four states � and the only one east of the Mississippi River � grandfathered from a 1992 federal law prohibiting sports betting.

      Legislation would have to be introduced/approved by the General Assembly and signed by the Governor. The Governor has stated several times that she will not sign any legislation authorizing sports wagering. (Term expires January 2009).

      The Governor has stood by her decisions even when a majority of citizens do not approve of them (Indoor Smoking Ban - 2002). Unless you believe in miracles, do not expect anything before 2009.
