Rule of threes? Louisiana third in 2020 to send sports betting to voters Jill R. Dorson, SportsHandle · May 28, 2020 at 1:53 am For the second time in two years, Louisiana voters will go to the polls with a chance to legalize a form of sports gaming. In 2018, voters in 47 of 64 parishes chose to make daily fantasy legal, and this November, they’ll get a chance to decide if sports betting should be allowed. The Louisiana House voted, 71-24 Wednesday evening to pass SB 130, and send the referendum to voters. The bill moved easily through the Senate and then House since being pre-filed in February. The bill is only three pages long, and does nothing other than lay out the referendum language. According to local media reports, the bill still needs Gov. John Bel Edwards’ signature before it can be placed on the ballot.
