The measure that won easy passage Tuesday from the House criminal justice committee would let voters in each parish determine on the Nov. 3 ballot whether to allow sports betting in that parish.  

No one on the committee objected to advancing Sen. Cameron Henry’s bill to the full House for debate. The Senate already overwhelmingly backed the idea from the Jefferson Parish Republican.

If voters agree to legalize sports betting in a parish, that’s only the first step, however.  

Determining which sports would be allowed, where the wagers could happen and how the activity would be taxed would be settled in a later legislative session. Additional legislation to create the licensing, regulation and tax structures would be required.
