Monday that he will introduce new sports gambling legislation after the Supreme Court  struck down a federal law that banned the betting in almost every state. At stake here is the very integrity of sports.

That’s why I plan to introduce legislation in the coming weeks to help protect honesty and principle in the athletic arena,» Hatch said in a statement. 1992 that prohibit states from authorizing and licensing a sports gambling scheme violate the anti-commandeering rule. The decision opens the door to legalized sports gambling nationwide. Hatch, who is retiring after this Congress, was one of the four original authors of PASPA.

He added on Monday that «problems posed by sports betting are much the same as they were 25 years ago,» when PASPA was originally passed.

We cannot allow this practice to proliferate amid uneven enforcement and a patchwork race to the regulatory bottom,» Hatch said. The Utah Republican didn’t detail how his forthcoming legislation would try to regulate sports gambling. But his office noted the bill would «establish fundamental standards» including trying to protect consumers and states that decide not to legalize sports betting, and upholding «the integrity» of sports.
