Colorado to vote on sports betting, and water could benefit

DENVER (AP) — Colorado residents are deciding if they should legalize sports betting and tax it to conserve the state’s most precious resource: water.

The ballot measure known as Proposition DD has bipartisan support and only token opposition.

It would allow online and in-person wagering on professional, collegiate, motor and Olympic sports starting next year.

Colorado’s proposal would tax sports betting proceeds to help fund a state water conservation plan.

A simple majority is needed to pass the proposal on Tuesday.
