The gaming trade body invites AGA’s Sara Slane to testify on sports betting

Earlier in the week, the gaming trade body made an announcement stating that it has invited Sara Slane, American Gaming Association (AGA) Senior Vice President of Public Affairs, to testify at the House Judiciary Subcommittee on Terrorism, Crime, Investigations and, Homeland Security’s hearing on sports betting which is set to take place on Thursday (Sept. 27).

As per the report, in her testimony, Slane will elaborate AGA’s perspective on why states and sovereign tribal nations, rather than the federal government, are best positioned to regulate and keep a track of legal sports betting markets.

Back in the previous week, Slane sent a letter to Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY), in which she repeated the AGA position, claiming that the best way of eliminating illegal offshore sports wagering in the US Is by implementing successful and safe legal sports betting markets in the country.

As more and more states have begun opening regulated sports wagering markets, Congress has been conducting an extensive research to determine whether federal sports betting guidelines are actually the need of the hour.

Entitled “An Examination of Sports Betting in America,” The House Judiciary subcommittee hearing is set for Sept. 27, in Washington, D.C.
