Former U.S. Presidential Nominee Mitt Romney Working On Sports Betting Bill

Republican Senator Mitt Romney of Utah is collaborating with Democratic Senator Charles Schumer, the Senate minority leader, on a bill to establish federal guidelines for sports betting, according to sources.

Schumer and former Republican Senator Orrin Hatch of Utah introduced a similar bill in December 2018, known as the Sports Wagering Market Integrity Act.

The Schumer-Hatch bill would have included the requirement for sports books to purchase official data collected by the nation’s major sports leagues through the end of 2024.
