The House Ways & Means Committee approved a sports betting bill on Friday that backers say would clear the way for more minority and female entrepreneurs to get a foothold in the new and fast-growing industry. The measure, House Bill 940, has the powerful backing of House Speaker Adrienne A. Jones (D-Baltimore County). A work group has been meeting regularly to discuss the issue and consider amendments.
