PATERNO AND OTHERS CONCERNED ABOUT FATE OF GAMBLING BILL
Published August 2, 2000
Penn St. Univ. football coach Joe Paterno and "other college officials are going on the offensive this week against money and politics," according to ABC's Brian Ross, as the NCAA "has come to believe that millions of dollars from the gambling industry has blocked a bill in Congress that would outlaw gambling on college sports in Nevada casinos" (see THE DAILY, 7/19). The NCAA believes the anti- gambling bill "is being blocked behind the scenes by Senate Majority Leader Trent Lott, who in public says he supports" the bill. While Paterno has tried to meet with Lott, a Lott spokesperson said the senator "has been too busy over the past year to meet with coach Paterno" (ABC, 8/1).
