As the Sports Betting Bill makes its way to a floor vote, they're weighing in on how it could change the game. The Intelligencer of Wheeling reports the organizations is- sued separate statements pointing out the bill's weaknesses and suggesting improvements. They say the bill doesn't pro- tect consumers or prevent players from betting on their own sports, in addition to lacking proper safeguards. "Any sports betting legislation must include clear, robust and enforceable protections to mitigate any possible risks to our game," the statement from MLB said. "The law quickly advancing in West Virginia unfortunately falls short of meet- ing those standards We would be happy to work with leg- islators and the Lottery Commission to improve the current language." " We do not believe the bill currently under consideration will achieve the critical goals of protecting consumers and the integrity of our league. We hope the legislature will examine these issues more closely and amend the bill to include the necessary safeguards," the NBA said. An attorney representing both leagues, Scott Ward, pro- posed four possible provisions to the Senate Finance Com- mittee on, including advertising restrictions and leagues being able to opt out of specific betting forms they believed aren't sufficiently monitored. He also supported a 1 percent "integ- rity tax" to help investigate and monitor games in real time. MLB and NBA executives hadn't responded to the newspa- per's request for comment as of Feb. 13.
