A diverse line-up of witnesses is now scheduled for Thursday’s federal hearing on sports wagering in Washington, D.C.
The House Judiciary Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism, Homeland Security, and Investigations hearing is called “Post-PASPA: An Examination of Sports Betting in America.” The subcommittee is charged with reviewing testimony on the national consequences of the legalization of sports wagering.
The scheduled witnesses are:
• Jocelyn Moore, executive vice president of communications and public affairs at the NFL;
• Sara Slane, senior vice president of public affairs at the American Gaming Association;
• Becky Harris, chair of the Nevada Gaming Control Board;
• Jon Bruning, counselor at the Coalition to Stop Internet Gambling (CSIG);
• John Warren Kindt, professor at the University of Illinois.
A spokesperson for Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner (R-Wis.), who chairs the subcommittee, told Bloomberg Monday the chairman “looks forward to hearing from these witnesses who represent a wide variety of positions on sports betting.”
