Congressman Collins Disappointed with Decision Temporarily Banning Daily Fantasy Sports Companies

Dec 11, 2015
Press Release

Congressman Chris Collins (NY-27) today released the following statement expressing his disappointment in the New York Supreme Court granting injunctions banning FanDuel and DraftKings from operating in the state until a final decision is made.

“The decision to temporarily deny more than 600,000 New Yorkers access to daily fantasy sports is extremely disappointing,” said Congressman Collins. “The hypocrisy of New York State banning this game of skill, while promoting their state lottery as ‘mak[ing] more New Yorkers rich than any other game,’ embodies the backwards and special interest driven priorities of our Attorney General.”
