Two new proposals threat the Professional Amateur Sports Protection Act in New Jersey
New Jersey initiative for more liberalised sports betting, which has been built for some time, could soon see the restrictive federal Professional Amateur Sports Protection Act overturned in the state with the latest legislative attacks that two more politicians have launched.
In order to allow New Jersey to run its own regulated sports betting, Republican Rep. Frank LoBiondo and Democrat Rep. Frank Pallone, Jr. came out in support of bills HR 3809 New Jersey Betting and Equal Treatment Act of 2012 and HR 3797, Sports Gaming Opportunity Act of 2012. They haven't missed to explain the financial benefits if the sportsbetting restrictions were lifted.
If the bills were approved, that would bring more pressure on PASPA, an increasingly unpopular law among states that disagree with confining sports betting to just three favourite states.
Residents of New Jersey approved in November 2011 regulated and licensed sports betting in the state by a 2 to 1 margin when the subject was placed on the ballot following Sen. Ray Lesniak legislative attempts to defeat PASPA.
Also this week Californian veteran state Sen. Roderick Wright was pushing bill SB1390 through a preliminary senate committee trying to overthrow PASPA.
