On Thursday, United States senators reopened debate on the bill, sponsored by Sens. John McCain and Sam Brownback, which would end legal betting in Nevada on college sports.

The bill, also sponsored by Reps. Lindsey Graham and Tim Roemer, is backed by the NCAA and several big-name coaches.

The Nevada congressional delegation has pledged to kill the bill.
