NJ Panel to Consider Law on Sports Betting

TRENTON -- Legislation that would allow New Jersey's horse racing tracks and Atlantic City casinos to accept wagers on sporting events will go before an Assembly panel this week.

It would allow gamblers to make bets in person or via telephone or the Internet, though wagers would not be allowed on college games that take place in the Garden State or involve a New Jersey college team, regardless of where the game was played.

But before any such law could be enacted, voters would first have to amend the state Constitution to permit such wagering.

Statistically, the Supreme Court takes only a small percentage of the cases its asked to hear, but Goldberg says that's not the only hurdle Delaware faces.
