KEEP FANTASY SPORTS BETTING IN
This year, the Louisiana Legislature is considering a bill that would legalize fantasy sports in Louisiana. The bill proposed by Representative Talbot, HB 459, seeks to legalize internet based fantasy sports betting.
Internet based sports betting companies are out-of-state companies who DO NOT employe Louisiana residents, DO NOT own property in Louisiana and DO NOT contribute to Louisiana's economy.
By restricting fantasy sports betting to Louisiana establishments with a 21 year age requirement to enter, thousands of bars, hundreds of truck stops, and many other Louisiana based businesses will benefit by attracting new customers who go there to place their bets resulting in an increase in patronage and business.
Additionally, limiting fantasy sports betting to establishments with a 21 year age requirement to enter will help to combat underage gaming which cannot be accomplished through the use of internet and mobile fantasy sports betting.
Keeping fantasy sports betting in establishment only is a WIN for Louisiana businesses, a WIN for Louisiana employees, and a WIN For Louisiana!
Help us to keep fantasy sports betting IN ESTABLISHMENT ONLY!
