Governor Hogan Signs Major Legislation to Legalize Sports Betting

226 Measures Signed Into Law Today, Including Measures to Repeal the State Song, the Jordan McNair Safe and Fair Play Act, and Expansion of Alcohol Carryout and Delivery

ANNAPOLIS, MD—Governor Larry Hogan today signed into law HB 940, major legislation to legalize sports betting in the State of Maryland. It is one of 226 measures the governor enacted today alongside Senate President Bill Ferguson and House Speaker Adrienne A. Jones.

“Today we are signing another 226 bipartisan bills into law, including legislation to legalize sports betting in the State of Maryland and to repeal the state song—a relic of the Confederacy that is clearly outdated and out-of-touch,” said Governor Hogan. “I want to thank the legislators on both sides of the aisle for working together with us in a bipartisan way this session.”
