According to a report, residents of New Jersey will probably not be given the opportunity to wager on sporting events, besides horse racing, online in the future.
An article by John Brennan in The Record has quoted NJ Senator Ray Lesniak --- sponsor of a bill for expanded gaming in the state --- as saying that he has "caved" in regard to the online sports wagering aspect of the bill.
NJ Governor Chris Christie, who has publicly supported the Lesniak bill which passed a statewide referendum earlier this fall, has been quoted as saying that he had “concerns about the bill the way it’s currently configured.”
The report states that a revised version of Lesniak's bill is to hit Gov. Christie's desk some time in January, 2012.
