    The Kansas Racing and Gaming Commission took a step on Friday to legalize sports gambling in the state. The commission unanimously approved regulations for sports betting during its meeting Friday in Topeka.

    Sports betting radio show host Alex Gold says today is a promising step in the right direction.

    “Now it’ll head over to the attorney general’s office to move forward. Earlier the week it was the Kansas Lottery passing some of their similar regulations,” said Gold.

    The agenda states that the commission was tasked with clarifying specific language related to sports betting. The regulations also detail a ticket writer’s duties when they begin a shift, among other things.
