Over the past year, few have fought as hard or as vocally against daily fantasy websites as New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman. Schneiderman's office was among the first to begin investigating sites like DraftKings and FanDuel, and soon the AG was demanding that the sites stop taking New Yorkers' money and even return money they had accepted previously. But the icy relationship between NY and DFS may be warming a bit.
The state legislature approved a bill that would legalize and regulate daily fantasy sites last week, perhaps looking for a piece of the billion-dollar online gambling pie. But no touchdown dance yet -- the bill still needs approval from the governor.
