Today’s contentious markup of the NCAA betting legislation proves that this ill-conceived bill is not ready for prime time. The extended debate and divided committee votes show that there is significant disagreement about how best to proceed this year. There’s clearly a growing sense that this bill lacks the support its sponsors claimed. As we have been saying all along, when people started focusing on the facts, they would recognize this bill for what it is: a cosmetic response to serious campus gambling problems. We’re pleased that more members of Congress are now joining independent experts in disputing the NCAA’s false assertions about sports wagering in Nevada.
