Jocelyn Moore, the NFL's executive VP of communications and public affairs, said the league is asking for "core standards to protect the integrity of our game." She added that they could provide:
Easier paths to data sharing between leagues.
Greater authority on interstate commerce, law enforcement and money laundering.
Protection for intellectual property and data for leagues.
Sara Slane, senior VP for public affairs at the American Gaming Association, agreed that everyone at the hearing is racing against the illegal betting market, but maintained that state regulations are strong enough to beat it.
