La. state lawmakers reject fantasy sports betting

(KSLA) - The Louisiana legislative session comes to close with lawmakers agreeing on a state budget.

That takes a costly special session off the state.

However, it left several bills on the table — like fantasy sports betting.

The bill died after a filibuster.

The bills sponsor says voters in parishes that legalized the fantasy sports betting will not be able to place bets this fall.
