Kansans could be placing legal bets on their favorite sports teams next year.
A legislative committee met Tuesday to discuss options for sports gaming. Many states are eyeing the tax money they could gather now that a federal ban on sports betting has been knocked down.
Lawmakers on the committee believe it’s likely that Kansas will legalize sports gaming. The question is what it might look like, and how much it’s taxed.
Republican Sen. Bud Estes said the state must be careful to avoid too many taxes.
