As expected, New Jersey governor Chris Christie has vetoed the controversial recent Online Gambling Legislation, which would have online gambling legalized in New Jersey, but with some surprising provisos.
Christie publicly stated last week in no uncertain terms that, with only minor changes, he would approve the bill.
These changes would most notably include the addition of a 10 year trial period for the bill to assess its repercussions for the state and more of the annual budget devoted to gambling addiction rehabilitation.
These changes to the legislation were considered lenient and are likely to be adopted and then the bill will be passed.
This will make New Jersey the third state to legalize online gambling in the USA, after Nevada and Delaware.
