As the legalization of sports betting continues to stall in the Missouri legislature, the St. Louis Cardinals are looking to circumvent congress and get the issue on the November ballot.
“We’re just so frustrated [with the lack of progress],” said Bill DeWitt III, president of the Cardinals. “It’s working against our fans and our citizens who overwhelmingly support it.”
DeWitt has been an outspoken proponent of legal sports betting and is one of many that have feverishly encouraged legislators to reach a resolution. He recently said that he would like the issue to be decided by the masses via the initiative petition process.
