6 states adopt DFS laws; 21 don't

BOSTON (AP) Daily fantasy sports companies have scored some legislative victories as they push for laws preserving their industry in nearly every state.

Six states - Colorado, Missouri, Mississippi, Tennessee, Indiana and Virginia - enacted laws this year legalizing and regulating the online games offered by DraftKings, FanDuel and others. But 21 others, including Arizona, Florida, Maryland and Washington, declined to take action.

Six more legislatures haven't adjourned and could still pass bills, including California, New Jersey and Pennsylvania.

Peter Schoenke, chairman of the Fantasy Sports Trade Association, says he's pleased with the progress so far in the embattled industry's first coordinated state lobbying effort.

But anti-gambling activists complain the new laws don't have strong enough consumer protections. And smaller fantasy sports companies fear they'll be squeezed out by costly fees included in many bills.
