Lawmakers of Kentucky are busy in gathering votes in an effort for passing the House Bill 175 out of the House and into the senate. Kentucky's adjournment is slated for March 30 which means that the window for passing the bill is relatively small. HB 175 is one of the several sports betting proposals which have come forward this season from state Representative Adam Koenig, a Republican from Northern Kentucky which is being viewed as the legislative vehicle. Koeing said in an interview that he would be able to know by the end of this week that if he had votes, he could continue to push this session and emphasize on regulating real-money poker sites and sports books. Although it is unclear whether policy makers from Kentucky's rural areas will agree to the proposal or not, proponents of Koenig's bill will try to use the popularity of online poker and gambling as an advantage even if it does not get unanimous support from the local crowd. Koenig's bill has 20 co-sponsors and it was amended during its time in House committees last week and it also put forth some amendments which might help it gain support in the senate. The clauses included that the bets on random events not integral to the course of play like NFL coin tosses are prohibited. It also asserts that online poker must be conducted in conformance with federal law. The legislation also proposes that the Kentucky Horse Racing Commission would institute a system of sports wagering at tracks and other specified locations in the state.
