It might be a short session with another gaming topic taking center stage but Kentucky sports betting should be legalized this year, Gov. Andy Beshear said.
Beshear touched on multiple topics in the first episode of Governor Andy Beshear: First Year Reflections on Kentucky Educational Television. Around the 35-minute mark, Beshear is asked by the host if the time is right to legalize KY sports betting:
“I believe the time was right years and years and years ago when virtually every state around us, all Republican states, already have it. We talk about having a competitive business climate but right now we’re not allowing business that every state around us is.”
