Speaking for the first time since the Supreme Court ruled the federal ban on sports betting is unconstitutional, Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin punted on the issue.
In an interview with Chad Young on Bowling Green’s WKCT, Bevin remained consistent. The Governor does not believe there’s a political appetite for casino gambling, but sports gambling is a different story.
“It will be the decision of our legislature,” he said, according to WDRB’s Marcus Green. Bevin believes the Supreme Court made the correct decision, but the Governor did not say if he would veto a bill or if he believes the legislature will actually make it happen in Kentucky.
This story will be updated with audio from Bevin’s interview. Until then, enjoy Marcus Green’s timeline.
