New Jersey Trying to Offer Sports Betting Online
Proposed Legislation Still in Legislature
NJ TODAY reported Thursday that a New Jersey Assembly panel approved a bill that would allow residents to wager on sports, both live and online.
The measure is in line to go to the full Assembly in the future. In a November referendum, New Jersey residents said they support legalized sports betting.
The bill would prohibit betting on games happening within the state and also on New Jersey’s college teams, according to NJ.com.
If passed, the state would have to get federal approval. Only four states currently offer legalized sports betting of any kind.
State Sen. Raymond Lesniak, who has failed at passing intrastate web poker legislation, is behind the sports betting proposal.
