The Missouri House of Representatives could take up a vote soon on a bill by Republican Rep. Dan Houx that would legalize sports wagering. The bill appears to have the support from both parties with some expressing surprise that it didn’t reach the floor this week. Republican House Speaker Dean Plocher is in support of sports betting…

A subject of contention is that some lawmakers group sports wagering and video lottery terminals together in one bill; something Republican Senator Denny Hoskins has been unsuccessful at trying to do for years. House Minority Leader Crystal Qua,e sees sports wagering as a missed opportunity given the Chiefs won this year’s Super Bowl.
