TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Fantasy sports would be declared legal under a bill approved by the Kansas Senate. The chamber voted 37-1 to send the bill to the House for consideration. Passage there will send the measure to Governor Sam Brownback. The bill is a response to the state Racing and Gaming Commission's announcement in August that it views fantasy sports leagues as illegal lotteries. Under Kansas law, only the state can run lotteries. The bill declares that the results of fantasy sports contests are determined by the skill and knowledge of the players. State Attorney General Derek Schmidt issued an opinion in April saying he believes fantasy sports to be legal games of skill. Fantasy sports players make up digital teams from a pool of real athletes and track how well they play.
