The Louisiana legislature tried to get some steam behind a sports betting bill in May 2019, but the efforts failed in the House. Not long after, though, the Senate passed a new bill on fantasy sports regulation, which also includes some language around sports betting. That bill went no where. There has been recent movement on two sports betting bills, which have passed out of the Senate and are up for a vote in the House on Friday, May 22. If passed, it would put a referendum on the ballots for November, allowing each parish to vote yes/no on sports betting. Of note, the bills do not include online betting; the bills are similar to the one in neighboring state Mississippi.
