Mobile Sports Betting and Problem Gambling

year but, mobile sports betting will be here sooner than we are ready. We are concerned NYS is not prepared for the consequences that will face many families. We are concerned about the young people who will be bombarded with free offers and enticing ads.We are concerned about the credit card debt, financial ruin, family struggles, and the potential for suicide that so many entertain as an option for a way out of the chaos they are living when they have a gambling problem.  As lawmakers it is important you are educated about this issue.  Your constituents WILL be impacted.  Please take a few minutes to learn more.
