New Jersey Could Have Sports Betting By Start of NFL Season

New Jersey Could Have Sports Betting By Start of NFL Season
BY BOB HOLT

New Jersey is turning to Plan B in another effort to legalize sports betting.

Four major sports leagues have been battling New Jersey in the courts ever since the state passed a referendum that would allow sports betting in 2012. Sports betting has been prohibited in all but four states since 1992.

The U.S. Supreme Court would not hear the case on Monday. But sports betting supporter Senator Ray Lesniak has come up with a revised plan.

According to NorthJersey.com, in Lesniak’s plan, current sports betting rules in New Jersey would be revised so private entities could oversee betting at the sites.  Federal laws now state that a “government entity” cannot “sponsor, operate, advertise, promote, license, or authorize by law or compact” betting on professional and college sports in states such as New Jersey.
