- The Georgia Senate passed a gambling bill on Friday March 5, 2021.
- Senators approved Senate Resolution 135, which would ask voters if Georgia should allow online sports wagering in the state. The resolution to amend the state’s Constitution, which needed support from two thirds of the chamber’s 56 members, passed 41-10.
- The bill will not allow gambling on Georgia schools.
