New Jersey Governor Chris Christie has his pen out and began signing various bills related to the gambling sector into law this week.  Yesterday, Christie signed a measure that would make New Jersey only the second state to offer exchange wagering for its horse racing industry.

Early Tuesday the Governor enacted bills that will create a state-run Tourism District in the Atlantic City while easing casino regulations.

Still awaiting a signature is a bill that would ultimately legalize most forms of online gambling in the state including poker and sports betting. 

“We have to watch closely as he’s definitely in a signing type of mood over the last two days,” said Payton O’Brien, Senior Editor of the Gambling911.com website.

Christie is yet to indicate whether he would veto such a bill. 

"The long-term revitalization of Atlantic City begins today, and we are proud to be a partner in that effort," said Bob Griffin, president of the Casino Association of New Jersey.

Atlantic City casinos would also be put in charge of operating the Internet gambling ventures.
