Abstract

This paper examines the federal government’s recommendations concerning pathological and problem gambling and the gaming industry’s response to those recommendations. The research for this paper comes primarily from two national studies: the 1976 Commission on the Review of the National Policy toward Gambling Final Report and the 1999 National Gambling Impact Study Commission Final Report. In 1999 the American Gaming Association released its own review of the casino industry. These reports reveal the difficulties of government at the state and federal level in addressing the problem of pathological gambling.
