Multiple sources now confirming, a House Judiciary subcommittee is expected to hold a hearing on sports betting at 10 a.m., Thursday, Sept. 27. Hearing has not been put on official calendar yet and postponements happen frequently.

The American Gaming Association on Thursday released a letter urging Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer to allow states to do their thing.
