Today Governor Andrew Cuomo signed into law a bill that ensures a strong future for the fantasy sports industry in New York and serves as a beacon to the rest of the nation. It clarifies fantasy sports are legal games of skill, thus ensuring millions of New Yorkers can continue to play the games they love. Behind the leadership of Sen. John Bonacic, Assemblyman J. Gary Pretlow and, now, Governor Cuomo, New York passed a law with important consumer protections and took into consideration the needs of many different types of businesses in our industry. The FSTA will continue working hard to convince other states to pass similar, common-sense legislation that protects consumers and supports all of our member businesses.
