The Senate gave initial approval to a bill taxing and regulating fantasy sports contests and defeated a last-minute effort to do-away with fees paid by operators.

Before going to the governor’s desk, the legislation will be heard in the Senate finance committee.

It’s not clear how much the measure would raise, though the head of the Lottery Commission puts the dollar figure in the “hundreds of thousands” ballpark.
