New Jersey represents an important state in the United States when it comes to online casino gambling. Once again, intrastate online gambling in New Jersey has been the main subject regarding the online casino industry. A bill proposing regulated intrastate online gambling in this American state has cleared both the state Senate and Assembly. On December 18 the New Jersey House of Assembly has indicated its approval for the online gambling bill with 48 votes in favor, 25 against and 3 abstentions. Two days after this step, on December 20, the Senate voted almost unanimously in favor of the bill, with the tally being 33 to 3. Besides that, the Senate voted also to amend and supplement the existing Casino Control Act to make it compatible with the proposed bill.

The proponents pointed out that almost all activities have migrated to the online environment and have taken advantage of the revenue options offered and therefore New Jersey’s gaming industry should not be left behind. The arguments in the Assembly debate said this was a carefully crafted bill designed to ensure that all required precautions have been built in. Representatives of the Democratic Party supported these arguments saying this step forward will mean economic growth and job creation for the state of New Jersey.

The final step of this process implies New Jersey Governor Chris Christie. For 45 days, the Governor has to sign the bill into law or veto it. On the other side, if Governor Christie takes no action in this period then the bill is deemed to be accepted by him and it becomes an act. This process represents a second chance for this bill as two years ago a similar intrastate online casino gambling bill had been passed by the Assembly and the Senate, but Governor Christie vetoed. This time, Christie has gone on record stating that he is in favor of this version of the online gambling bill. Another important element is that the state of New Jersey urgently needs the revenues that online casinos will generate in order to be able to recover from the damages made by hurricane Sandy.
