Take stand against Missouri House Reps Grill and Colona’s bill to urge Congress to lift ban on sports betting

An online source is reporting that the Missouri House legislature’s Grill and Colona have introduced a bill to urge Congress to lift sport betting rules:

A resolution in the Missouri House asking the US Congress to lift PASPA, proposed by Reps. Grill & Colona, both Democrats:

House Concurrent Resolution No. 22

95TH GENERAL ASSEMBLY

INTRODUCED BY REPRESENTATIVES GRILL (Sponsor) AND COLONA (Co-sponsors).

3818L.02I

…therefore, be it resolved that the members of the House of Representatives of the Ninety-fifth General Assembly, Second Regular Session, the Senate concurring therein, hereby urge the United States Congress to remove the federal ban on sports wagering;

This piece of legislation, however, is far from being enacted.  The resolution must be assigned to a committee and face public hearings before it could be voted on by the committee, much less advance to the full House floor.   It is also a “House Concurrent Resolution” that would require both the House and Senate adoption, thus facing the entire legislative process.  Use this time to contact your local House and Senate representative and tell them to oppose such measures.
