Sports Betting in Iowa

May 30, 2018

Earlier this month, the U.S. Supreme Court handed down a decision allowing states to legalize, tax and regulate sports betting. Until now, Nevada has been the only state with the right to allow fans to put bets on games and point spreads legally.

In Iowa, a bill was introduced that would allow casinos to run sports betting operations. During this hour of River to River, host Ben Kieffer talks with State Representative Jake Highfill about the bill and what it does.

Keith Miller, a law professor at Drake University, Sports Columnist Mike Hlas, and Wes Ehrecke, president and CEO of the Iowa Gaming Association, also join the conversation.
