• New Jersey Lawmakers Push To Pass Online Gambling Bill

    14 February 2013


    Press of Atlantic City reports that lawmakers have fully incorporated all of Governor Chris Christie’s recommendations for an online gambling bill that is due to return to his desk by February 26th.

    While the New Jersey Senate is not scheduled to meet until March, its lawmakers are determined to move on the Internet Gambling Bill. A February 26th meeting would allow for a vote to be taken prior to a scheduled budget address by Gov. Christie.

    Once presented with the revised bill, Governor Christie would have 45 days to sign the legislation into law, something he has said he would do if it included his recommendations. Said Senator Jim Whelan, “Opening New Jersey gaming up to Internet wagering will provide untold benefits to the state and to the city, which has had to contend with increased out-of-state gaming competition in recent years.”

    Delaware is nipping on New Jersey’s heels to be act on its own online gambling legislation that was approved last summer. Who will emerge as the first to offer it to the public remains anyone’s guess.
