This article summarizes federal legislation attempts during the past 14 years in the areas of online gambling and sport betting, arguably the most contentious gambling industry sectors. The paper first recaps the key pieces of legislation in effect as of mid-2012 governing the U.S. gambling industry. The major section of the paper follows, encompassing all legislative bills since the 106th Congress (1999-2000). Finally, this contribution attempts to forecast any possible outcomes of the pending New Jersey-led efforts for the repeal of the restrictive federal legislative framework in regard to sport betting.
