Chris Christie Internet Gambling

New Jersey’s Governor will either veto or sign a bill that would make the state the first to legalize Internet gambling.  He won’t just sit back and let the bill become law without decisive action, reported the Press of Atlantic City late Wednesday.  Christie has until the stroke of midnight Thursday (March 3) to act. 

State Senator Raymond Lesniak told the paper that he still had no idea which way the Governor was leaning.  A third option is that Christie will require some changes to the measure.  The bill as it stands now would only allow New Jersey residents to gamble on sports and poker sites that are hosted out of Atlantic City. 

Lesniak claims online gambling in the state would boost casino revenue by $100 million while creating some 500 high-tech jobs.

Pro-online gambling lobbyists were discussing the measure with the Governor’s legal counsel and how it would work within the framework of New Jersey law.

A news conference was scheduled for 11 am ET.
