Kansas to consider integrity fee in new sports betting bill

first_img Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Sports betting Kansas lawmakers are to consider a new bill that would legalise sports betting in the state and also require an integrity fee to be paid to the operators of the leagues.Senate Bill No.23, also known as the Kansas Wagering Act, sets out plans for the Kansas Lottery to offer sports betting in-person, via the internet and on mobile.If passed, the bill would limit in-person sports betting to facilities operated by the Kansas Lottery, approved retailers and other gaming facilities and racetracks that have agreements in place with the lottery.Under the proposals, the lottery would be able to set up dedicated websites and mobile apps for sports betting, as well as an interactive sports wagering platform.The bill also sets out a provision for licensed sports betting operators to pay a ‘sports betting right’ and ‘integrity fee’ to each sports governing body with the authority over a sports event on which bets are placed. This would be payable at the end of each quarter, on July 1, October 1, January 1 and April 1.Operators would pay an amount equal to 0.25% of the aggregate total wagered on sports events. However, the bill also sets out that this amount should not exceed 5% of the aggregate gross revenue on wagers in each quarter.If the bill passes, Kansas would become the first state to commit to a scheme whereby operators would have to pay an integrity fee. Sports leagues have been pushing for such a measure to be included as part of new laws across the US, but states that have already legalised sports betting have opted against such a move.Washington D.C. initially included reference to a ‘royalty fee’ in a bill, but later removed this language before progressing the bill. The state is yet to pass this bill into law.The other language in the Kansas bill is similar to legislation that has already been passed in other states, such as a requirement for players to be located inside the state to place a sports bet.Consumers would also need to be aged 21 or over in order to bet on sports, while all sports professionals – including athletes, coaches, referees and team owners – would be prohibited from betting in the state.In addition, the bill sets out plans to set up a toll-free telephone number to help consumers access help and advice for gambling problems.Sports betting has been on the agenda for some time now in Kansas and, before Christmas, lawmakers met for two days of hearings on the subject. At the time, Representative Jan Kessinger told iGamingBusiness.com that a number of bills could be filed within weeks of the meetings.Senate Bill No.23 is some way off coming into law, with the bill now set to face the committee, full legislature and, if it should progress to that stage, the governor.Image: Stuart Seeger 22nd January 2019 | By contenteditor Tags: Mobile Online Gambling Kansas to consider integrity fee in new sports betting bill Regions: US Kansas Email Address Topics: Sports betting Kansas could commit to paying an integrity fee to sports leagues under a new bill that has been put forward in an effort to legalise sports betting in the US state.

There’s something completely baffling about the share price of retailer Marks & Spencer (LSE:MKS). It has seen a sharp fall over the past year, a continuation of a five-year-long history of falling share price. In fact, so dramatic is this story, that my colleague, Paul Summers, wrote about how much worse off investors would be if they had invested in the stock five years ago.  Yet, M&S has a high price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 36.8 times, higher than the 15.2 times for Next, which is a much better performer. It’s even higher than the 24 times P/E for Primark-owner Associated British Foods.  5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Uninspiring updates I’ve argued in the past a high P/E doesn’t always mean that a stock is expensive. Instead, it can be seen as the value investors put on it. A case in point is the FTSE 100 pharmaceuticals giant AstraZeneca, whose share price has been defying gravity despite a P/E of 48 times.  But I am at a loss to find a similar justification for M&S’s high P/E. Its latest trading update is disappointing, with a 0.7% fall in revenue in the last quarter. What’s even worse is that the quarter covers the festive season. Imagine what the results would have been like if it didn’t. Or rather, just look at last quarter’s numbers, which showed an even bigger 2.1% revenue fall.  Questionable dividend situation It’s true that M&S’s dividend yield isn’t bad at 5.9%. But there are two points to note here. One, the further the share price falls, the better the yield appears. Two, while it has managed to stay profitable, its level of profits has dwindled quite a bit in the past two years. I’m not sure how long, if at all, it will be able to maintain its dividends in this scenario. Disrupted by the fast-paced increase in online retailing over the past decade, brick-and-mortar retailers are going through painful transformations. Until these transformations are complete and positive results show up in M&S’s financials, I’d refrain from investing.   Festive cheer As far as retailers go, I’m more inclined towards the FTSE 100 grocer Tesco (LSE:TSCO) despite its far lower dividend yield of 2.6%. One big reason for this, of course, is that it’s much cheaper than M&S, with a P/E of 18.3 times. But also because it has reported a comparatively encouraging trading update for the Christmas quarter. Its UK and Ireland market sales grew by 0.2%. The downside  However, I’d heed some investing caution in this case too. The group’s overall sales for the quarter fell 0.9% because of its poor performance in Central Europe and Asia. Admittedly, these markets are minuscule for Tesco compared to the UK and Ireland, but are still a big enough drag to negate the gains from them.   However, with Tesco maintaining its profits for the last two years and its optimistic outlook, I’m keeping it on my investing radar.

It may not be what you think, according to a report released last week by Barna Group.A new survey by the California-based Christian research firm found that Protestant pastors are worried less about hot topics like religious liberty than they are about the decline of religion in America.The report is the first of a series of monthly releases from Barna Group’s State of the Church 2020 that will analyze how Christianity in the United States has changed and where it is headed, president David Kinnaman said.It’s the first time in 10 years that the research firm has publicly released the data from its annual State of the Church survey.“I felt like we’d been learning a lot over the past 10 years that allows us to more clearly communicate the big cultural trends that are taking place and what they mean for the church,” Kinnaman said.According to the report, three-quarters (72%) of Protestant pastors identify the impact of “watered-down Gospel teachings” on Christianity in the U.S. as a major concern. That’s especially true for pastors in non-mainline denominations (78%). Mainline pastors (59%) are less concerned.About two-thirds (66%) of pastors say a major concern for Christianity is “culture’s shift to a secular age,” followed by 63% who identified “poor discipleship models” as a major concern and 58% who named “addressing complex social issues with biblical integrity,” the survey says.In their own churches, most pastors reported that the major concerns they face are “reaching a younger audience” (51%) and “declining or inconsistent outreach and evangelism” (50%), according to the report.What doesn’t worry pastors very much: religious liberty — the stuff of Supreme Court cases, executive orders, campaign promises and a recent task force and summit. Only 23% of Protestant pastors identify it as a major concern or issue facing the Christian church today in the U.S., and 32% said it was not a concern or issue at all, according to Barna Group data.Other issues low on pastors’ list of major concerns include keeping up with technology and digital trends (7%), online churches and other challenges to the traditional church model (11%), “celebrity pastors pulling people away from the local church” (19%), the declining influence pastors have in their communities (20%) and the role of women in the church (23%).Barna Group’s survey also includes a small group of Catholic priests — not enough to be nationally representative, according to the research firm — who also place increasing secularism at the top of their concerns for the church nationally (along with addressing scandals and the abuse crisis in the Catholic Church and reaching a younger audience) and reaching a younger audience for their parishes.The research firm also is launching tools that allow churches to survey their own members. Kinnaman said it felt “more important than ever to give churches the opportunity to see the state of their church” — not just of the church, or Christianity, in general.“There’s so much information about big, broad trends. In order for trends to be relevant, they have to be contextual,” he said.Data in the first report of the State of the Church 2020 is based on 547 interviews with Protestant senior pastors on Barna’s PastorPanel conducted online between November and December 2019. The sample error is plus or minus 4.1 percentage points, according to Barna Group.This article was originally published by Religion News Service.

The total cost of the project will be €350,000 and follows a visit to Sri Lanka by the businessmen.Robert McCarthy and John Hickey, who own McCarthy’s Bar and Bistro, the Briar Rose Bar and Bistro and Penn’s Bar and Bistro, said the orphanage in Negambo, Colombo, will cater initially for 20 girls. But they hope that will rise to 40 girls within a few years.The duo also unveiled plans to build a Montessori school for 120 children as part of the €350,000 project.The sod has already been turned on the projects and details were unveiled last night of a range of fundraising activities over the next few months. The men plan to raise €250,000 to cover construction costs for both buildings and, incredibly, the remaining €100,000 will cover the facilities’ €500-a-month running costs for the next 20 years.The men experienced first-hand the devastation caused by the 2005 Asian tsunami when they visited Sri Lanka last May. Mr McCarthy said once they got home, they could not get the images of suffering out of their minds.It prompted them to set up the Sri Lankan Orphanage Charity project, which will feed into the work of the Irish Sri Lankan Orphanage Fund, set up in Arklow in 2005 by hotelier Brian Brennan.Cork senior hurler Tom Kenny has agreed to be charity patron. The charity will hold a Kidz helping Kidz fun-run event for schools on March 15 and 16, a July 4 banquet in the Capella resort in Castlemartyr, and a golf classic in the Lee Valley Golf Club on September 5 and 6.www.corksrilankaorphanagefund.ie.

A bench of Justices Manoj Misra and Deepak Verma allowed the state counsel’s request seeking ten days time to file a reply to the petition. The Court has directed that the state’s reply be placed on record by August 19, 2020. In the meantime, Union of India has also been asked to file its counter affidavit, if required. Khan is presently lodged in the Mathura jail under the National Security Act. He was arrested from Mumbai in January this year, for allegedly giving a provocative speech at the Aligarh Muslim University on December 13, 2019, amidst the anti-CAA protests. Notably, Khan had been granted bail by the court of CJM, Aligarh on February 10. However, he has been languishing in jail under the NSA Act, which was slapped on him by the Aligarh District Magistrate on February 15. The present habeas corpus plea was moved by Khan’s mother, Nuzhat Perween. She had first approached the Supreme Court in March this year, seeking release of his son. However, a bench comprising CJI S A Bobde, Justices Surya Kant and BR Gavai disposed of the plea with an observation that Allahabad High Court is the appropriate forum for dealing with the matter. Khan came in news first in August 2017, during the tragedy in Baba Raghav Das(BRD) Medical College Hospital, Gorakhpur, regarding the death of nearly 60 infants due to lack of oxygen supply. He was initially reported to have acted as a saviour by promptly acting to arrange emergency oxygen supply by paying out of his pocket. Despite being hailed as a hero for arranging cylinders as children gasped for breath, he was named in an FIR registered under Sections 409 (criminal breach of trust by public servant, or by banker, merchant or agent), 308 (attempt to commit culpable homicide) and 120-B (criminal conspiracy) of the Indian Penal Code. It was alleged that he was negligent in his duties, which resulted in a shortage of medical oxygen. He was arrested in September 2017, and was released only in April 2018 when the High Court allowed his bail application after observing that there existed no material on record to establish charges of medical negligence against Dr. Khan individually. He was also suspended from service alleging dereliction of duty. A report of the departmental enquiry absolved him of charges in September 2019.
