Legislation to give voters an opportunity in November to decide if fantasy sports gambling should be legal in their parish is one step away from final passage. A Senate committee approved River Ridge Representative Kirk Talbot's proposal.
"If you're in the parish that votes it in, you can log on with your phone and make a draft or decide which players to play, if you're in a parish where they voted it out, you're not going to be able to log on to the site," said Talbot.
