Today, Delegate Marcus Simon (D VA-53) introduced HB 2210 which would provide robust and enforceable consumer protections while creating a legal marketplace for sports betting. If consumer protections are important to you, be sure to sign the letter to the Virginia House of Delegates below showing your support.
This bill is the first and only bill to satisfactorily address all five elements of the Sports Bettors’ Bill of Rights at any level of government. SFC’s Sports Bettors’ Bill of Rights calls for regulations that protect and promote Integrity and Transparency, Data Privacy and Security, Self-Exclusion, Protection of the Vulnerable, and Recourse. SFC hopes that HB 2210 becomes the new gold standard for sports betting consumer protections.
"HB 2210 is the most consumer-friendly sports betting bill Sports Fans Coalition has seen at any level of government. It is the only piece of legislation that hits all five of our Sports Bettors' Bill of Rights -- Integrity & Transparency, Data Privacy & Security, Self-Exclusion, Protection of the Vulnerable, and Recourse," said Brian Hess, Executive Director of Sports Fans Coalition. "We commend Del. Simon for taking such a comprehensive approach to the legalization of sports betting in Virginia and encourage the Commonwealth's lawmakers to support this legislation..."
