International Legislators’ Agenda


International Legislators’ Agenda

at ICE Sports Betting USA

In partnership with 

2019 legislative session is approaching and sports betting is likely to be on the agenda for many of the US legislators.

Taxation & profitability, consumer protection & responsible gambling, market access & migration to legal gambling, in-play betting & integrity fees, Wire Act & mobile wagering– there are still so many questions that legislators need to address to decide the future of sports wagering in their state.

These issues will be discussed by both international and US policy-makers in New York City at the International Legislators’ Agenda, running alongside ICE Sports Betting USA which took place on November 27-28.

International Legislators’ Agenda, organized in partnership with the National Council of Legislators from Gaming States, a cooperation that has already taken NCLGS members to London and Brasilia, is a ‘closed door’ event that will feature a mix of international and US policy-makers in informal discussions on the most pressing issues that policy-makers are facing in legislating sports wagering.

These discussions, on the morning of November 28, focused on:

  • Taxation in sports betting: Managing the demand for state revenue against the profitability of the market
  • Consumer protection and responsible gaming: Creating a robust framework for protection of problem and ‘at risk’ gamblers and setting up advertising guidelines and restrictions to protect underage consumer
