The Missouri Gaming Commission is preparing to oversee daily fantasy sports websites under a new law passed this year.
House Bill 1941, signed last month by Gov. Jay Nixon, takes effect Aug. 28, but its provisions still have to go through a public comment period before they become permanent next spring.
So that sports fans can play this fall, commission members on Wednesday adopted emergency rules. Edward Grewach is general counsel for the gaming commission.
The emergency rules cover such things as applying for a fantasy sports operator’s license, an operator’s responsibilities, fees, and records; license suspensions, and lists of people banned from playing.
A public hearing on the emergency rules is tentatively scheduled for Nov. 2.
