Washington, D.C. – Today Rep. Dina Titus of Nevada’s First Congressional District released the following statement on Christie v. NCAA, the upcoming case to examine the Professional and Amateur Sports Betting Act (PASPA).

“PASPA has created a landscape where $150 billion in sports wagers are made annually without proper regulation or taxation. As the Supreme Court embarks on what is likely to be a landmark case for the gaming industry which sets 10th Amendment precedents, Congress must be prepared to assess and address how we can eliminate bad actors and ensure proper oversight of popular entertainment. Las Vegas is home to the world’s premier gaming properties, experts, companies and regulators. Those of us who have been involved with the industry know that a regulated market is better than an illegal one. Change is long overdue.”
