FCC expected to OK gambling ads in West

Published on .

The Federal Communications Commission the week of the 8th is expected to formally OK unfettered gambling advertising on TV and radio, at least in nine Western states. Reacting to an appellate court decision Aug. 27 not to rehear the agency's appeal of a ruling striking down a gambling ad ban law and FCC rules, the FCC is expected to announce it will no longer enforce its anti-gambling ad rules. Not clear last week was whether the agency might suspend enforcement nationally.
