re: Update on DFS. HB 357 to governor 5/31
It’s an epitome of everything that’s wrong up there. Henry absolutely started all this bull shite. Once the casinos, who are in Martiny’s pocket, realized they had no chance, they got Martiny to kill fantasy.


And yes, I don’t know how Valerie Hodges gets elected. She is so dumb and acts like we are living in 1950.

Isn’t Henry running for a new position in the fall? Any word on his opponent
If that’s the case?

One of the Senate seats in Metairie/Kenner. Not the one Martiny currently holds. I think District 9

Martiny isn’t 9. 9 is the district I’m in and it’s currently Conrad Appel. I really hope that sack of shite runs in my district so I can vote against him.

Any talk of the governor stepping in? This is a gigantic embarrassment and needs to be rectified.

These two look like they were just fighting a war in the legislature. Shits no better than professional wrestling, put up a good show in public, then laugh at the rubes behind their backs.

Henry is running for Appel’s seat. Shouldn’t have too much opposition unfortunately...

Someone I know, who knows Conrad well, told me "Conrad is a fricking idiot" after I showed him that picture lol

That was also taken Wednesday night, 1 day before Legislation ended

I am curious as well. Is there anything he can do?

Everyone is saying - Looks like La will be 2 years before playing. Nobody seems confident. Maybe something can be done but this won’t be done by football season.

I sent an email to the governor's office to take a look at it. I brought up the idea of a special session to get it done. They could use the first 6 months or so of taxes to pay for the session. Nothing is going to happen but I wanted to put my 2 cents in.

There is something brewing where some sites think they can offer dfs in Louisiana without penalty. (The penalty would be not being allowed to get a license when the tax bill comes) but there is no way Louisiana can tell FD and DK no if that happens.

Something should be coming out in the next two weeks. One way or another but there is hope. Louisiana would be getting $0 income if this happens which would force the governor to sign a temporary bill. That’s what is being talked about between some high ups at DK that I know. All lawyers on deck pretty much.

Good news. Please keep us updated. Considering the way this went down, you would think JBE would not have a problem helping this along.

Not a peep. Not even a hint either way. Looks like 2 years.

John Bell vetoed the bill on Wednesday on the regulations since the taxation wasn't passed. So it's officially dead until 2021.

I’ve never posted on the fantasy board. I live in Livingston Parish. Is draft kings a go or not?
