What's going on in Indiana is pretty interesting.
"Centaur Gaming, which runs casinos, horse tracks, and off-track betting parlors in Indiana, was not previously known as a funder of ALEC, but is a Vice Chair-level sponsor of the 2016 Annual Meeting. That’s the meeting where ALEC introduced a draft “model” bill on for-profit fantasy sports “contests.”
Centaur’s Vice President and head lobbyist has publicly criticized a new Indiana law that would legalize and regulate fantasy sports, saying the $50,000 registration and annual renewal was too pricey to be worth Centaur’s while. ALEC’s draft bill offers a steeply discounted application fee and requires renewal only once every five years."http://www.exposedbycmd.org/2016/07/28/casino-dollars-now-funding-alec/
