Fantasy Sports Association Gets Its First Lobbyist

Travis McCoy announces big plans

It has been reported this week that the Fantasy Sports Trade Association has acquired the first registered lobbyist - Travis McCoy, who announced his intention to engage in action in states such as Maryland, Montana, Washington and Louisiana, where people find it hard to play fantasy sports, even though the UIGEA contains a carve-out for this kind of gaming.

According to McCoy, "The FSTA saw an opportunity and wanted to open up these states and markets for their members to bring in more jobs, create more tax revenue. We're going to go into those states to make sure people can have fun and enjoy their games."

The major clients represented by the association, which was established in 1999, include CBSSports, Yahoo and ESPN.
