Legislation that would legalize fantasy sports games in the state is clearing its first test in the House.

Lawmakers passed a bill that would require fantasy sports businesses with more than 750 customers to register with the state and pay 500-thousand-dollars.

Representative Matt Gaetz says his bill creates a permissive yet regulated environment for the online games.

Daily fantasy sports websites like FanDuel and DraftKings support the legislation.
