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."

The Governor is a big proponent of sports betting legalization, so the biggest hurdle in Kentucky appears to be a divided House.
