Missouri Race and Sports Wagering
When pari-mutuel wagering was approved, the Missouri Horse Racing Commission (MHRC) was also established. The MHRC, which is a five-member board appointed by the governor with the consent of the Senate, was created to oversee the development and administration of the pari-mutuel horse racing industry in Missouri. The commission was assigned to the existing Missouri Gaming Commission (MGC).
In June 2008, the MHRC held its first meeting in 10 years with the MGC to discuss bringing back horse racing to state and county fairs and the possibility of introducing racinos. Beyond forming two subcommittees to research each of the discussion issues, the group never met again.
In May 2016, Gov. Jay Nixon signed a bill to oversee and regulate daily fantasy sports.
In January 2018, Rep. Bart Korman introduced a new bill that would have allowed licensed riverboat casinos and daily fantasy companies to expand their offerings to include traditional sports betting. Legislative hearings were held in Missouri prior to the Supreme Court's ruling that abolished PASPA, but the bill did not advance beyond the committee stage.
