New Jersey Online Gambling Bill Takes Step Forward

This story was published more than 11 years ago.

The state of New Jersey passed through an online gambling bill through an Appropriations Committee hearing on Monday and will now face a full vote in the house Assembly.

The bill was introduced to the New Jersey state legislature by Senator Ray Lesniak, who has worked hard to get some form of online gambling legalized throughout the Garden State. Last year a bill made it through the state's General Assembly and Senate only to be vetoed by Governor Chris Christie.

In the time since, Senator Lesniak has worked to make changes to his bill that the Governor could accept.

Currently no date has been set to vote on the bill.
