Although last year their initiative did not meet success, two New Jersey Congressmen, Rep. Frank Pallone Jr of the Democrats, and Republican Representative Frank LoBiondo have re-introduced bills challenging or amending the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act 1992 in separate moves from the current New Jersey attempt to introduce intrastate sports betting.
The bill authored by Pallone seeks to add New Jersey to the four states where sports betting is permitted under the federal law. The other one, LoBiondo bill, envisages a three-year window during which other US states can consider applying to the federal government for permission to offer sports betting.
In related news, on Feb. 14, Judge Michael Shipp, sitting in Trenton, New Jersey, will hear oral evidence from the national sports leagues and the US Department of Justice, both of which oppose New Jersey's law on the legalization of sports betting.
