The American Gaming Association has joined the ASBC to lead a national campaign 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:

 

Defer to states and tribal sovereign governments regarding the desirability of regulating sports betting.

Ensure the integrity of sports betting and sports themselves through appropriate licensing and regulation by state and tribal gaming commissions.

 

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.
