The Tennessee Secretary of State’s office has renamed its gaming department the Division of Charitable Solicitations, Fantasy Sports and Gaming, as required by the Fantasy Sports Act of 2016, and opened the process for licensing. The new law requires fantasy sports operators to obtain a license from the division. There is no requirement for players to register. A copy of the law, application and complete set of rules can be found on the secretary of state's website. Those with questions can email fantasy.sports@tn.gov or call (615) 253-6658. Humphrey on the Hill has more from the secretary of state.
