What is it?
A bold initiative
The California Sports Wagering and Consumer Protection Act will ensure that sports betting is safe in the state of California.
What community leaders are saying
“We built strict accountability into the measure. Being able to prove we invested this revenue wisely is what voters should and will demand from us.”
-Raul Peralez, San Jose City Council Member
“Let’s bring sports wagering out of the shadows, regulate the industry, and use a portion of the proceeds to benefit all Californians. Right now, the illegal and offshore operators reap those rewards and they’re bleeding us dry.”
-Tasha Cerda, Mayor of Gardena
“The revenue we generate from making sports wagering legal, while we’re making it safer for consumers, is potentially a lot of money to do a lot of good and means I don’t have to ask residents to reach into their own pockets.”
-Helen Fisicaro, Mayor Pro Tem of Colma
