UNH Law hosts town hall on future of regulated sports gambling in the region


ILLEGAL CONDUCT DOESN’T HAVE THAT LEVEL OF CONSUMER
PROTECTION. ONE STEP CLOSER TO BECOMING
LEGAL IN THE GRANITE STATE . SPORTS BETTING WOULD BE REGULATED BY THE NEW HAMPSHIRE
LOTTERY . OFFICIALS SAY THAT
WILL ENSURE THE CONSUMER IS
PROTECTED. CLIP 42 46:08-46:17
AS WELL AS A TRUST FACTOR,
OBVIOUSLY WE TAKE GREAT PRIDE IN
OUR NAME AND OUR BRAND SO WHEN
FOLKS PLAY THEY KNOW THEY WIN,
IF THEY WIN THEY KNOW THEY’LL GET PAID. U-N-H SCHOOL OF LAW HOSTED A
TOWN HALL THAT INCLUDED LAW MAKERS, INDUSTRY PROFESSIONALS,
AND REGULATORS .. THIS WEEK THE NEW HAMPSHIRE
HOUSE PASSED A BILL ALLOWING
MOBILE GAMBLING AND WAGERING AT
UP TO
10 RETAIL LOCATIONS ACROSS THE
STATE. CLIP 42 47:08-47:17
WE’RE REALLY GOING TO LOOK
TOWARDS A ROBUST REGULATORY
ENVIRONMENT THAT’S NOT SUITABLE
FOR EVERY PLACE BUT CERTAINLY
YOU KNOW A HANDFUL AROUND THE STATE WOULD LOOK TO LAUNCH. THE BILL WOULD LEGALIZE BETTING
ON PROFESSIONAL SPORTS AND MOST
DIVISION I COLLEGE SPORTS,
EXCLUDING GAMES INVOLVING NEW
HAMPSHIRE SCHOOLS *EXCEPT IN TOURNAMENT SITUATIONS. CLIP 41 42:40-42:50
SOME OF THE COLLEGIATE SPORTS
PEOPLE CAME IN AND SAID WE’D
REALLY LIKE TO INCLUDE THE
TOURNAMENTS THAT WE DON’T WANT
TO CARVE OUT, MAKE ALL THOSE TOURNAMENTS INACCESSIBLE TO ANY
OF THE NH SPORTS BETTERS IF A NH
COLLEGE WERE TO MAKE IT IN. THE
BILL INCLUDES A COUNCIL FOR
RESPONSIBLE GAMING THAT WILL
OVERSEA ACTIVITY AND PROVIDE RESOURCES FOR GAMING ADDICTION. OPPONENTS ARGUE THAT THE
NEW COUNCIL WOULD FURTHER STRAIN
THE STATE’S ALREADY INSUFFICIENT
MENTAL HEALTH WORKFORCE. MUCH LIKE WITH KENO, A SPORTS
BOOK MUST HAVE LOCAL APPROVE TO
OPERATE IN ANY CITY OR TOWN. THE BILL NOW HEADS TO THE SENATE. LIVE IN CONCORD, SL WMUR NEWS
