Sweden: Legislative proposal sent to Council on Legislation for review

The Swedish Government proposed a new Swedish gambling act based on the proposal made by the government-appointed investigator in March 2017, and sent the proposal to the Council on Legislation (Sw. Lagrådet) for review.

In essence, the Council on Legislation will review whether or not the proposed gambling act is contrary to any existing legislative act before the proposal is handed over to the Swedish parliament for approval.
