Congressman Paul Tonko is continuing his campaign against what’s known as predatory advertising for sports betting.

The congressman held a roundtable discussion on Tuesday.

With people impacted by problem gambling, to highlight the role of predatory sports betting ads in making gambling addiction worse.

“I think it’s fair to say the environment in which we’re now functioning is somewhat a wild west environment, with a highly unregulated, a very largely unregulated environment,” said Tonko.

Tonko has introduced legislation that will address the out-of-control ad spending, and demand accountability from the industry.
