NJ Voters May Get Say on Internet Gambling

It may be up to New Jersey voters to decide whether to allow online betting.
An Internet gambling bill that was going to be fast-tracked through the Legislature is being held up because the state Constitution may require the question to be put to voters.

Assembly and Senate panels have put off hearing the bill Thursday, the final committee meeting day of the session.

Bills not approved by Monday must be reintroduced after the Legislature reorganizes Tuesday.

Gov. Chris Christie said Wednesday he supports Internet gambling if it complies with the Constitution and is focused in Atlantic City.

The governor vetoed a previous online betting bill.

This bill would let customers create online accounts with the casinos. They would have to be in New Jersey when placing bets.
