Sports betting ruling has ripples for USA tribes with casinos

Sports betting ruling has ripples for USA tribes with casinos”

The U.S. Supreme Court's decision Monday to toss the federal ban on sports gambling will let states allow the wagering. Expect those discussions to ramp up, along with more aggressive lobbying in those states by sports book operators and the professional leagues.

It's being called a landmark Supreme Court decision and a historic day for American sports, as the U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that a federal ban on sports gambling is unconstitutional.

PASPA made an exception for Nevada, which allowed sports gambling in casinos, and grandfathered in three states that allowed sports lotteries or pools.

Hours after the ruling, the National Football League called on Congress to "enact a core regulatory framework" for legalized betting, citing "the potential harms posed by sports betting to the integrity of sporting contests and the public confidence in these events". The commission would also have to set up regulations. "At the same time, I have deep respect for the federalism principles that underlie today's Supreme Court decision", he said.

Overall, the decision may be read as a marker of the future direction of states' rights jurisprudence on what may well become a more conservative court.

Florida governor candidates' views on legalizing sports gambling vary widely, ranging from outright opposition to vocal encouragement.

He didn't immediately respond to follow-up questions. The four new non-Indian nation casinos are clearly hoping for some quick action.

Bonacic has a bill that would allow mobile betting - something the 2013 law doesn't allow - but only after a user registers at one of the casinos in person. The NBA and MLB have been lobbying states to give a small percentage of the amount wagered back to the league offices.

"Sports are played on a national and sometimes worldwide stage, crossing state borders and involving residents of numerous municipalities", said Rummy Pandit, a gambling analyst with New Jersey's Stockton University.

"Now that the US Supreme Court has validated forms of sports betting, it's incumbent on states to have consumer protection laws in place and properly collect our fair revenue share", Levine said. To reach this conclusion, Alito relied on the notion that there was no functional difference between requiring the state to enact legislation and banning the state from enacting legislation. In New York's case, that probably needs to be completed by June 20, when the current legislature session ends, for it to take effect this year.

And also: Two powerful figures have pumped the brakes on the issue in recent days.

"I've always believed we must protect our reputation as a world-class, family-friendly destination", Putnam said.

"For the members of the Assembly, it's not something we take lightly and so anything that expands it, we want to take a really hard look at it".

Where does Cuomo play into this?

Judging by the fact that Monday's decision was hailed by more than a few Republicans - now the majority party in both chambers - and the forceful enforcement of states' rights expressed in the Supreme Court's opinion, that's likely a prescient assessment.

If lawmakers pass a bill to speed up the process, Cuomo would have to sign it.

"We'll do an economic analysis and a legal analysis, but nothing's going to happen this year because there's literally just a number of days left in the legislative session and this would be a very big issue to tackle", Cuomo told reporters Monday in Manhattan.

On Monday, the high court struck down a federal law that limited sports betting to four states that met a 1991 deadline to legalize it: Nevada, Delaware, Montana and Oregon.

It's less clear whether the Seneca Nation of Indians will or can move ahead with sports betting.

The Senecas, who own casinos in Buffalo, Niagara Falls and Salamanca, issued a statement Monday that didn't take a definitive stance.
