The AGA is leading a national conversation with law enforcement, sports leagues and other interested parties to align the law with American attitudes, protect the integrity of sports, and curb the massive illegal gambling market.  Any effective approach should include:

 

Defer to states regarding the desirability of regulating sports betting as all forms of casino wagering
Ensure the integrity of sports betting and sports through state licensing and regulation
 
Make all sports betting businesses transparent to law enforcement
Ensure a tax regime does not undermine regulated sports betting operations’ ability to compete against illegal offshore operators
