TULSA, Oklahoma -

A state lawmaker from Ponca City filed a bill that would make sports betting legal in Oklahoma's casinos. The bill would add in-person sports betting to the gaming compacts Oklahoma has with the tribes which operate the casinos.

State Representative Ken Luttrell says sports betting is already legal in 15 states, including a few hours away in Arkansas.

The legislative session starts next month.
