    Supreme Court Strikes Down Law Banning Sports Betting - States will now decide

    some States are foaming at the mouth to allow sports betting - certainly New Jersey

    Monmouth Racetrack in New Jersey has been preparing for this for a long time and is saying it could open betting windows within 2 weeks

    I was really excited to see this - good for America and bad for offshore sites and illegals, etc....

    PA sportsbooks won't be far behind - should be within a month or two. PA has already passed all necessary legislation. They only need the Gaming Commission to issue appropriate regulations. They'll definitely be up and running for football season.

    Sad thing for New Jersey - once again, PA will eat their lunch.

    In our state, they are already talking about amending the compacts to allow this.

    But remember; we really don't have federal statutes outlawing sports betting/gambling. And Frank can correct me on this. It's why you have to report gambling income on your taxes even if illegal in your state. The ruling states that there is no federal law preventing gambling and they feds can't outlaw something in one state and allow it in another IF there is not a specific country wide prohibition. I do NOT think this Congress would pass such a global/federal law but if they did............might change the outlook and situation here.
