Missouri legislative session ends without legal sports betting
| By Marese O'Hagan
A bill that would permit sports wagering in Missouri made progress in the state house last week, but the legislative session ended before it could be passed to become law.
House Bill 2752, which was sponsored by Representative Dave Griffith, was first introduced on 23 February 2022. It was read for the first time that day, then for the second time the following day.
After then stalling for months, it was referred to the Special Committee on Public Policy on 13 May. However, this was the same day as the state’s 2022 legislative session ended, and with no committee hearing held, sports betting was not passed during this year’s legislative session.
