Indiana And Kentucky Look Into Sports Betting

Both state will take their time

Indiana lawmakers are going to take the summer to study how the state would legalize sports betting. But House Speaker Brian Bosma says just because the legislature is going to study the issue, doesn't mean lawmakers will approve it.

Bosma says the plan is to study both the impact on the state's treasury and to the state's casinos.

Lawmakers say they also plan to ask the NCAA, which is based in Indianapolis, for their input as well.

Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin says people have been betting on sports since the dawn of time, so why not let them do it in Kentucky. 

The governor yesterday said he is open to talking about legal sports gambling in the state now that the U.S. Supreme Court has opened the door. 

Bevin says he still isn't a fan of casinos in the state. 

He said he expects lawmakers to start to work on a sports book proposal relatively soon.
