US Congress looks set to consider action on sports betting

By site_editor

Yogonet, September 28 2018 reports that the US House Judiciary Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism, Homeland Security and Investigations held its long-anticipated hearing on the potential for federal regulation of sports betting on September 27.

The article goes on to say that the first congressional hearing on traditional sports betting in a decade took place Thursday and featured testimony from the NFL and a closing remark that indicated federal action may be coming.

"I think the one thing you all can agree on is for Congress to do nothing is the worst possible alternative," Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner (R-Wis.) said in wrapping up Thursday's 1½-hour hearing. "So this means we have some work to do."
