Urge your Legislators to Pass Sports Wagering, House Bill 175
Sports wagering presents Kentucky with a unique opportunity to get ahead of our competitor states, grow jobs, and help pay down the Commonwealth’s crushing public pension debt.
House Bill 175 comes after a decision by the United States Supreme Court in May of 2018 opening the door for states to allow bets on sporting events.
Estimates show legalizing sports wagering could bring as much as $20 million into the state through tax revenue which would be spent on the cost of regulating wagering, addiction prevention services, and any additional funds going to the state’s woefully underfunded pension systems.
