Californians have never been ones to wait around and let government do the work. And keeping in theme with wanting to have a say in what’s next for the state, on Monday, political consultant Russell Lowery filed a request with the state’s attorney general to consider a ballot initiative to legalize California sports betting.

“I think the biggest reason for this is consumer protection. It’s going on now,” Lowery told the Los Angeles Times. “Because of the revenue the state could generate from legal activity plus the consumer protections that could be afforded the gambling public, it ought to be regulated.”

The proposed initiative, titled the Gaming Fairness and Accountability Act, would go on the 2020 ballot.
