Tennessee governor to allow sports betting to become law without signature.

* Despite being opposed to the legalization of gambling, Gov. Bill Lee says he will allow a Tennessee sports betting bill to become law without his signature.

After a vote of approval last week in the House of Representatives, the Senate on Tuesday passed legislation that would permit online sports gambling beginning July 1, while continuing to prohibit the practice at brick-and-mortar locations.

Senate Bill 16 narrowly passed on a vote of 19 to 12, as it did in the House 58 to 37. Afterward, the House even more narrowly adopted some minor Senate amendments with 51 votes.
