Kansas Governor Laura Kelly has signed Senate Bill 84 into law, which will allow for sports wagering in the state. Senator Virgil Peck says the primary focus of this bill is to attract professional sports teams into Kansas.
Senator Peck says there are some restrictions on where bets can be placed. Senator Peck was not a supporter of the bill but SB 84 did pass with bipartisan support.
Governor Kelly says this is another mechanism that Casinos, restaurants, and other entertainment venues can utilize to attract Kansans to their establishments.
