Proposed: By Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., that all sports leagues be involved in determining acceptable wagers at sportsbooks, which he said should use only official league data to determine bets. The outline was first reported by Darren Rovell of ESPN.com. The PGA Tour, Major League Baseball and the National Basketball Association issued a joint statement: “As legalized sports betting spreads across the states, there is a need for consistent, nationwide integrity standards to safeguard the sports millions of fans love. We strongly support the legislative framework outlined by Senator Schumer and we encourage Congress to adopt it.” Earlier this year, the Supreme Court overturned a ban on sports betting in most states.
