LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Another attempt to legalize sports gambling in Kentucky could go before lawmakers.

This week, Democrat Julian Carroll filed legislation that would allow any horse racing track, or off-track wagering facility, to host sports gambling.

The proposal comes after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled the federal law prohibiting sports wagering in most of the nation was unconstitutional.

Carroll filed similar legislation last year, but the bill did not get a hearing.

The bill requires that revenue generated from sports wagering be put into some of Kentucky's retirement systems.
