Christie OK’s Sports Wagering

By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog

meadowlandsracetrackGovernor Chris Christie is continuing the fight to legalize sports wagering in New Jersey ahead of Monday afternoon’s Atlantic City summit, Save Jerseyans.

For starters, the Administration is issuing a directive declaring that, effective immediately, New Jersey casinos and racetracks may operate a sports pool. Confused? put another way, the state will no longer prosecute sports betting as of today.

He is also filing a motion in federal court asking for clarification or modification of the February 2013 injunction.

Here’s the motion & brief, proposed order and directive for your review. Do you agree with today’s decision? Let’s hear from you in the comments…

  1. Glad we are standing up for our 10th amendment rights. Colorado and Washington legalized pot even though it is federally outlawed. No reason we shouldn’t have sports gambling and it is even more ridiculous that federally it is legal for only four states. All states are supposed to be equal.

  2. Confused. What is a sports pool? We’re is it? When does it start?? Do.u.mean if I want to bet week’s football games? U ready??? Like vegas. If true. U ARE on right track. steps. U do realize u have to redo the whole Atlantic city . Boardwalk & ATLANTIC & Pacific aces.

  3. Wouldn’t it be nice if Governor Christie mentioned the words “Tenth Amendment” and “Equal Protection” in discussing this, rather act like a “progressive” who pretends that this is a complicated legal issue that only lawyers and judges understand. Like Liberty Prosperity
