Today, a bill that would regulate and legalize daily fantasy sports in Tennessee passed the state Senate by a vote of 27-2. The Tennessee House passed the bill late on Monday and it will now head to the Governor’s desk. Please find FanDuel’s statement on the bill passing the TN legislature below:

“The legislature has passed strong, but smart regulations ensuring the more than one million fantasy players in Tennessee benefit from important consumer protections and can continue to play fantasy sports. We want to thank the bill sponsors Senator Jack Johnson and Representative Pat Marsh, and the members of the legislature for taking a detailed and careful approach to this issue, which delivered a reasonable solution for the state.”
