BILL TO ALLOW FOR SPORTS GAMBLING PASSES ASSEMBLY COMMITTEE

Legislation asking voters to help pave the way for sports wagering at Atlantic City casinos and New Jersey racetracks was advanced Thursday by an Assembly panel. The sponsors noted Las Vegas saw about $100 million in wagering on this year’s Super Bowl, while Atlantic City saw no such activity on professional football’s biggest day. The bill would ask voters to amend the state Constitution to authorize the Legislature to enact laws allowing sports wagering at casinos in Atlantic City and at racetracks. Under the measure, wagers would be allowed to be placed at a casino or racetrack on the results of professional, college or amateur sport or athletic events. Wagers would be prohibited on college games that take place in New Jersey or involve a New Jersey college team, regardless of where the game takes place.
