TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - A bill legalizing sports betting in Kansas is back in the Senate after passing through the House.

Representatives made amendments to a Senate bill before approving it with support from both parties.

The bill would legalize in-person and online sports betting approved through the Kansas Lottery. It would also define sports betting, leaving out exceptions like fantasy sports leagues.

The Senate sent the bill to a committee to go over the amendments.
