Two casino bills survived another deadline in the Mississippi House and Senate Tuesday, but still have a ways to go to get passed and signed into law.

HB 774 that would allow online sports betting was amended in Senate committee Tuesday morning to move the code sections out of committee and keep it alive. It was introduced by Casey Eure, chairman of the House Gaming Committee.

Also on Tuesday, the House Gaming Committee moved SB 2780 out of committee with a reverse repealer, which provides more time to make adjustments to the bill as it moves through the process by forcing it to conference.
