If PASPA is Repealed, Then What?

by Andrew Klebanow

Much has been written about the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PASPA) and its possible repeal.  To summarize, there are three possible outcomes.  The first is that the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) rules PASPA is unconstitutional.  In that case, it will be up to the individual states to decide whether to allow sports betting and the various forms it might take.  The second scenario is that SCOTUS lets PASPA stand in its current form.  In this scenario it would be up to Congress to decide if it wants to repeal or amend PASPA.  Given the current political climate in Washington D.C., passage of such a bill might take some time.  The third scenario is that SCOTUS takes a completely different route, either issuing a partial repeal or potentially invalidating the four state exemption that currently exists.
