4 reasons Chris Christie now against sports betting in New Jersey

4 reasons Chris Christie now against sports betting in New Jersey

Sacrosanct is defined as a program or property that is too important to be interfered with and could be considered inviolable.

Governor Chris Christie used the term as a reason he vetoed a bill that would have brought legalized sports betting to New Jersey.

The Press of Atlantic City reported that the bill would have allowed New Jersey to get around the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act that bans sports betting in most states. Christie said he disagreed with the court ruling that upheld the sports betting ban, but he added, “I do believe that the rule of law is sacrosanct.”

States were forbidden to sponsor sports betting, but Senator Ray Lesniak’s bill may have permitted locations like Monmouth Park racetrack to accept sports bets.

Governor Christie had been a supporter of overturning the PASPA ban, but said he did not want to go around the court rulings upholding it. According to an Associated Press report on ABC News, Christie said, "Ignoring federal law, rather than working to reform federal standards, is counter to our democratic traditions and inconsistent with the Constitutional values I have sworn to defend and protect."
