A sports betting bill zoomed through a legislative committee in the Kentucky House in early 2020, but quickly hit a snag as Republican lawmakers called the issue "divisive," as lobbyists successfully killed the bill, despite it appearing to have majority support in both chambers. Kentucky will now have to wait until 2021, at least, for legal sports betting -- and in odd years, the state requires bills to get 60% support for them to pass, an extra hurdle to clear that wasn't present in 2020. The good news is that Gov. Andy Beshear is a big proponent of sports betting legalization.
