Nevada Representative Dina Titus to Congress: No Need to Reinvent Wheel on Sports Betting

The post Nevada Representative Dina Titus to Congress: No Need to Reinvent Wheel on Sports Betting appeared first on SportsHandle.

Nevada Representative Dina Titus (NV-1) has been on record many times reiterating her distaste for a federal framework for sports betting. After all, the state of Nevada has had legal casino-style gaming, including sports betting, since 1949. With nearly 70 years of experience under its belt, Nevada doesn’t need any (or want) any input from, well, novices. As the old saying goes, if ain’t broke, don’t fix it. 

“I don’t think it’s a very good idea, it’s reinventing the wheel,” Titus told Sports Handle on Tuesday. “Nevada has been doing this for a long time and we do it very well. You’re going to have to start from whole cloth if you start from the federal level. The more states that move into this, and there are five already, the less appetite there would be for a federal framework.”

But with just about a month remaining in the current Congressional session, mid-term elections looming in November, and much bigger fish to fry — the Kavanaugh hearings, balancing the budget, settling the latest version of the farm bill — Congress is again dipping its toes into the world of sports betting.
