Only two people spoke Thursday at the Iowa Racing and Gaming Commission’s hearing on the proposed rules for sports betting.
The two who spoke were representatives of online sports betting companies and the Iowa casinos, and there were no comments made by members of the public.
Iowa Racing and Gaming Commission administrator Brian Ohorilko says they did do a lot of work to let everyone involved know about the rules.
