MO House deals a hand in favor of sports betting
The Missouri House has given initial approval to an effort to legalize sports betting.
The second half of the Missouri Legislature’s session is underway with the House wasting no time advancing an effort to legalize sports betting.
State Representative Dan Houx of Warrensburg is the sponsor of the bill that is estimated to bring in an additional 21-to-29-million dollars in revenue for education.
One more House vote of support would send the bill to the Senate for further debate – a place where similar bills have died in the past.
