TO CHANGE THE SPORTS BETTING LAW,AN ENTIRELY NEW POLICY ENVIRONMENT MUST BE CREATED.
In recent years, public attitudes have been rapidly evolving around the need to change the current ban on sports betting in the United States. As evidenced by a consistent stream of quotes from key league officials, team owners and policymakers, a critical shift in the landscape has begun.
Nearly six in ten Americans are in favor of ending the federal sports betting ban and allowing states to decide the question of legalization; fully 72 percent of avid sports fans are in favor of ending the ban; and nearly 2 in 3 Americans believe regulated sports betting would allow communities to benefit from additional tax revenue and job creation. But shifting public attitudes is only the first step towards ending the sports betting ban.
To change the sports betting law, an entirely new policy environment must be created. The American Sports Betting Coalition brings together leaders in law enforcement, business, and organizations representing elected officials to advocate for a repeal of PASPA and give states the ability to decide the question of legalization.
