Legislative Study Committee to Examine Sports Betting

Indiana legislators have ordered a study of the pros and cons of legalizing sports betting in Indiana.

Sports betting was a last-minute add to a roster of 52 topics for legislative study committees, after Monday’s Supreme Court ruling removing a legal barrier.

House Speaker Brian Bosma says he’s “not necessarily a fan” of the idea, but says it’s clearly going to be a subject of discussion in next year’s legislature and deserves the close examination a summer study can provide.
