Michigan was poised to become the fifth state with legal online gambling last year, but an unexpected veto by outgoing Gov.Rick Snyder put the kibosh on those plans.The good news is that the sponsor is taking another bite at the apple this year.The even better news is that Michigan would now be the sixth state to legalize online gambling, after being leapfrogged by West Virginia.Jim Justice didn’t put his signature at the bottom of H 2934.The WV online gambling bill became law when Justice declined to act before the procedural deadline.
