Indian Gaming Commission Responds To SCOTUS Decision On Sports Betting

The Supreme Court ruled that the federal government can not constitutionally ban gambling on sports, following the Tenth Amendment and returning that power to the states.

The New Jersey senate then revised the law. The decision - which reversed opinions by lower courts - means states may legalize and operate betting on professional and college sports.

According to NJ.com, Dennis Drazin, the chairman and chief executive of Darby Development LLC, which operates Monmouth Park, said it was initially his belief that a previous state law permitting New Jersey casinos and racetracks to offer sports betting without state regulation would allow Monmouth Park to begin accepting bets immediately. The NBA and MLB have been lobbying states to give a small percentage of the amount wagered back to the league offices.

"We know that, given the Supreme Court ruling yesterday, we need to understand the impacts on our state, including the existing gaming industry, and be prepared for discussions next session, pro or con".

Southern Baptist leaders warned there would be harmful consequences from legalized sports gambling. The measure "unequivocally dictates what a state legislature may and may not do", he wrote. "I'm anxious to get started just like everyone else".

In Murphy v. NCAA, the Court, in an opinion authored by Justice Alito, ruled that the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act ("PASPA"), which barred states from "authoriz [ing]" betting schemes on "competitive games in which amateur or professional athletes participate", violated the anti-commandeering principle of the Tenth Amendment.

Justice Samuel Alito wrote for the 6-3 majority that a federal law barring state governments from authorizing sports gambling is unconstitutional under the "anti-commandeering doctrine", which holds that Congress may not tell state governments what they can not do.

Originally, it included a provision to legalize sports wagering, but it was removed. The law also enabled Delaware, Montana and OR to have limited legal sports gambling.

"Americans will continue to be entrepreneurial, especially finding a way to evade all the compliance costs, tax costs, regulatory costs", Lowenhar-Fisher said.
