Fantasy Sports Gambling There has been a push over the last two years or so to allow daily fantasy sports sites to operate in Iowa. The Iowa Senate passed such a bill this last session, but the House did not pass it. Unfortunately, the federal gov- eminent says that these sites involve games of skill and are not gambling. I took the lead on the Senate floor in opposing the bill. My contention is that no matter how much time you spend studying a particular sport and its players, there is a substantial element of chance when you bet on the performance of certain athletes. Anyone who follows sports knows that there are always times when the star athlete has a bad game, and other times when someone comes off the bench to turn in a great performance and win the game. The Nevada Gaming Commission has recently weighed in on the issue, rul- ing that daily sports fantasy betting is indeed gambling. I see very little difference between betting on the per- formance of a racehorse, and the performance of a base- ball or football player. You can study the backgrounds and past performances'of horses and/or human athletes, but there are always upsets that defy any predictions. Iowa Youth Caucus Reminder I am working with school administrators and teach- ers to put on the Iowa Youth Caucus, for schools in Warren and Madison Counties that have chosen to par- ticipate. Earlham students will be attending the caucus in Dallas County. This is a statewide, bipartisan effort where high school and junior high students can learn about the Iowa Caucuses. There will be both a Republi- can Caucus and a Democrat Caucus and the students will debate issues of their choosing. Representatives of the presidential campaigns are invited to address the gathering. All students will attend both caucuses. The caucus will be held Thursday, Nov. 19, at the Indianola High School, beginning at 4:30. As always please feel free to contact me with your ideas or concerns at Julian.Garrett@legis.iowa.gov.
