|Jefferson Parish Representative Kirk Talbot will present a bill in the regular session, to put a proposition on the October ballot for voters to decide whether or not to allow legal internet sports betting in Louisiana. The issue dates back to a 1991 attorney general opinion concluding that fantasy draft games done over the phone were illegal and by expansion, now includes websites such as Draft Kings and Fan Duel. Talbot argues this proposition would not expand mainstream gambling.|
