Virginia legislators are pushing to establish a new state committee tackling gaming addiction. The state competes for additional tax revenue from the lottery, casinos, sportsbooks, horse racing, and slot machines.

Virginia legislators are pushing to establish a new state committee tackling gaming addiction. The bill was introduced by Senator Bryce Reeves and Representative Paul Krizek. It would form a Problem Gambling Treatment and Support Advisory Committee. Its goal would be to facilitate collaboration between the gaming business and treatment centres. The Virginia Council on Problem gambling, a nonprofit organisation that runs the state’s gambling helpline, will be represented on the committee. They will include representatives of all state agencies involved in gambling regulation and the gambling industry.
