Iowa Political Alert: Iowa casinos eye NJ lawsuit aimed at opening sports betting

Excerpted from this post at Iowa Political Alert

Iowa's top gaming industry representative said this morning that his
association is closely watching a federal lawsuit in New Jersey aimed
at opening up sports betting nationwide. "Certainly we're aware of
it," said Wes Ehrecke, president of the Iowa Gaming Association. "As
far as the industry I think this certainly would be of interest to our
members." With New Jersey facing major budget problems and with
Atlantic City casinos suffering, a state senator there has filed a
suit in U.S. District Court in Newark, N.J. against the Justice
Department that seeks to overturn a ban on sports betting.
