A New Jersey daily fantasy sports bill that a state senator plans to introduced is the strictest attempt to regulate the DFS industry.
“We have a draft of a bill that we are circulating to a variety of people, the Division of Gaming Enforcement, the Casino Control Commission, other legislators, as well as people in the fantasy sports industry, to take a look at what might be appropriate for New Jersey to do,” state Senator Jim Whelan told Legal Sports Report in an interview on Wednesday. “Other states obviously are looking at this; we’re not talking about doing anything to ban it or to make it more difficult for the customers.
“Clearly there are issues that have been raised and we need to have this conversation,” Whelan said.
Sen. Jim Whelan indicated he has plans to introduce a bill regulating DFS; it has not yet been filed in the legislature.
According to a post on Facebook, he said he has sent a letter of his intent to introduce legislation to Division of Gaming Enforcement Director Dave Rebuck and Casino Control Commission Chairman Matt Levinson.
