Kansas Senate approves bill legalizing fantasy sports

1 comment

Demonstrators gather on the south steps of the Kansas Statehouse for a group photo by organizers in protest to House bill 2453, a measure approved by the House that would have allowed people to cite religious beliefs in denying services to same-sex couples. The demonstration, which drew several hundred members was organized by the Topeka non-profit group Planting Peace.

Fantasy sports would be declared a legal game of skill under a bill approved by the Kansas Senate in a 37-1 vote Monday. Lawmakers moved several pieces of legislation as they shift into the final stretch of the session. The fantasy sports bill would clarify an ongoing dispute over the legal status of fantasy football leagues if passed by the House and signed by Republican Gov. Sam Brownback.
