Clues To The Future Of Sports Betting Revealed In How Elected Officials Are Steering The Conversation by John Brennan
After mainly focusing on Thursday on what five speakers had to say at a U.S. House of Representatives subcommittee hearing on U.S. sports betting legalization in Washington, D.C., we are following up by looking closely at how the House members asking them questions addressed the topic.
Some of them ranged a bit far afield, and there was no real consensus on how to approach this issue in the wake of the Supreme Court’s landmark decision in May that wiped out a near-total ban on legal sports gambling that had been passed by Congress in 1992.
But some clues were provided that could give us a better idea on what directions this committee might consider going in the future.
