Major League sports organizations weigh in on WV sports betting bill

Major League sports organizations weigh in on WV sports betting bill

Bills at the state Capitol are both pending in the House and Senate Finance Committees. The NBA argued for a 1% integrity fee at hearings in NY, with the money going towards compliance, enforcement, monitoring, investigations and education.

Major League Baseball and the National Basketball Association have both come out against the bill as it is written.

Major League Baseball has become the latest United States sporting association to weigh in on prospective sports betting in the United States, publically voicing its opposition to efforts to legalise sports betting in West Virginia.

"Any sports betting legislation must include clear, robust, enforceable protections to mitigate any possible risks to our game".

"We appreciate the legislature's work on the subject of legalized sports betting; however, we do not believe the bill now under consideration will achieve the critical goals of protecting consumers and the integrity of our league".

The sports organizations are offering their ideas on how to improve the sports betting bill, while they also seek a 1 percent "integrity tax" to help them investigate and monitor sports games and gaming boards as they happen on the field and on the courts. The law quickly advancing in West Virginia unfortunately falls short of meeting those critical standards.

The version of this bill passed in the Senate calls for state regulators to review Dominion's rates every three years. "We commend the delegates who have sided with ratepayers as they work to improve this deeply flawed legislation".

Susan Collins , R-Maine, appeared on the verge of a breakthrough on a rival strategy. In another statement, the White House said it opposes the McCain-Coons plan .

"We are hopeful the legislature will complete a significant overhaul of the law and bolster protections".

"...because gambling on a sport, or any sport but on this sport is what you want to talk to me about, is I think the deadliest of all things that can happen".

"I don't see a way", Kilgore said.

Current MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred spoke briefly on the subject of sports betting several times in 2017.

But asked whether there is a mechanism for Dominion to spend the money and not put it in the rate base, he said no.

"The reason why sports betting can even exist is because we stage these games and deliver a high-quality product". "First, we are pleased to see the bill has passed the House of Delegates", spokesman David Botkins said. It goes on to state that West Virginia would benefit financially from allowing the practice.

Protecting consumers includes provisions such as reasonable advertising restrictions, self-exclusion programs for problem gamblers and requiring the use of official league real-time data to ensure the accuracy and consistency of betting outcomes for fans.
