TRENTON – Legislation sponsored by Senators Raymond J. Lesniak and Jim Whelan which would allow Atlantic City’s casinos to offer Internet-based wagering to gaming consumers was approved by the Senate today by a vote of 33-3, receiving final legislative approval.
“If New Jersey’s casinos wish to compete in the 21st century, we have to give them the freedom to adapt to a 21st Century marketplace,” said Senator Lesniak, D-Union. “By allowing casinos to tap into the burgeoning trend of Internet wagering, we can put New Jersey at the forefront of this lucrative gaming market and give our casinos the competitive edge they need in the current economic climate. This bill will mean more jobs, more revenues for our casinos, more tax revenues for worthy programs like health and housing assistance for seniors and people living with disabilities, and a healthier gaming industry in the Garden State.”
The Northern County Democratic chairs are scheduled to test their newfound alliance tomorrow at a meeting of the principals in Lyndhurst, according to a party source.Read More >

“I would love to go back there and retire there and live there in an independent country that is my birth right. I worked hard in this country, I made friends, but I have been detached.
