Report: Sports Betting Bill ‘Stalled’ In Kentucky House

The Lexington Herald-Leader reports that sports betting legislation in Kentucky seems to be stalled in the state’s House of Representatives. It appears Republicans are somewhat divided on the issue, with some in more rural areas expressing hesitation over bringing another form of gambling to the state — particularly since they know it will become available on mobile apps, making it even more convenient for users to put up their money.

There may also be hesitation in the state’s Senate, which Herald-Leader writer Daniel Desrochers speculated could stoke hesitation for legislators in the House to refer the bill onward.

The bill’s proponents believe sports wagering is already going on in Kentucky, and the only difference the bill could make is allowing the state to profit off it.

Rep. Adam Koenig, R-Erlanger, who sponsors the sports betting bill, said he remains confident Gov. Andy Beshear will sign it into law by the end of the legislative session in April.
