DES MOINES, Iowa - Rules that would govern sports betting in Iowa will be the subject of a hearing next month.

A follow-up meeting is expected July 30 to approve the new rules and regulations.

According to KCRG-TV 9, the commission would like to get regulations finalized before football season begins in the fall. The commission is looking at how some other states handle issues like underage gambling, gaming controls and what kinds of bets should be allowed.
