Fantasy sports = gambling?

In many states, such as New York, Hawaii and Texas, the answer is yes, but not according to a new bill proposed by Rep. Fitzpatrick in Missouri.

HB 1941 would clarify the legal language of Missouri’s gaming laws to provide an exemption for daily fantasy sports sites. Currently, there is nothing codified that would conclusively indicate these sites as gambling or non-gambling operations.

Fans of FanDuel have reason to rejoice – if the bill becomes law, that is.
