RALEIGH — A bill to legalize and bring sports betting to North Carolina was introduced by state Rep. Jason Saine (R-Lincoln) on Monday. 

After narrowly failing in the North Carolina House of Representatives last year, the bill would authorize betting on college and professional sports in up to 12 sports books that will pay to set up the infrastructure in the state.
