Missouri Sportsbetting Bill Fails For 2022

The state of Missouri won't be getting legalized sportsbetting this year, after it was revealed that Governor Mike Parson is unlikely to allow a sportsbetting bill to be heard during the current legislative year.

A bill had been introduced during the ongoing special legislative session, but Parson spokesperson Kelli Jones said that the bill isn't relevant to the session. This means that the bill will have to wait to be introduced next year. Sportsbetting legislation has struggled in Missouri, as a bill was introduced this year and made it through the House, but failed to advance through the Senate.

The special legislative session will be discussing income tax reductions, as well as other items, but voting can only take place on approved topics from the Governor.

In a statement Spokesperson Jones said, "Sports betting is clearly beyond the call and does not relate to Governor Parson's topics in the call. I do not anticipate sports betting being a part of special session."
