State governments across the United States are working hard to capitalize on a trend that has already swept through much of the world: legal betting. As the popularity of sports betting and other forms of gambling continues to grow, lawmakers in states across the nation are eager to get in on the action.

For many years, federal law prohibited most forms of sports betting outside of Nevada. However, a 2018 Supreme Court decision paved the way for individual states to legalize and regulate their own sports betting industries. Since then, more than a dozen states have passed laws allowing some form of legal sports wagering.

This rapid expansion has been fueled by a number of factors. For one thing, many state officials see legalizing gambling as a way to generate additional revenue for their cash-strapped governments.

Sports Betting Bill Makes Progress in Kentucky

Kentucky is one of the latest states to join the nationwide push for legalizing sports betting. The state’s House of Representatives has unanimously passed a new bill that paves the way for sports betting in Kentucky. HB 551, introduced by Rep. Michael Meredith, aims to legalize and regulate online and land-based sports wagering in the Bluegrass State.

According to Meredith, betting is already happening in the Commonwealth, with data showing that Kentuckians currently bet around $1 billion annually on sports in an “illegal, unregulated market.”

“We know there’s a ton of this activity already going on in the state, and there’s a ton of residents crossing the border to place their bets,” said Meredith. “We just need to bring this home and regulate it properly.”

But there is opposition, as David Walls, executive director of The Family Foundation, makes clear, “Just because other states are making bad policy decisions and preying on their own citizens is not a good reason for Kentucky to follow suit.

“This type of predatory gambling is designed to prey on human weakness, with the government colluding with gambling interests to exploit our fellow Kentuckians,” Walls said.

Missouri Senate Postpones Sports Betting Discussion

Missouri Lawmakers are completely ignoring the sports betting issue, There is a bill in the Senate and the House, and they were supposed to discuss the issue this week. 

Still, it has yet to happen, and at the moment, there is no date to re-address the discussions.

The big issue in Missouri is VLTs, some machines that work similarly to a casino slot machine but that in this state can be found in gas stations, convenience stores, and other public spaces.

 These machines are not regulated, and the bill that is under discussion presents a framework to regulate them, something that many do not seem to like.

Specialists believe that as long as there is no agreement on the VLTs, the discussion of sports betting will not advance.
