Burzichelli on Christie Internet Gaming Conditional Veto
(TRENTON) – Assemblyman John Burzichelli (D-Gloucester/Salem/Cumberland) released the following statement Thursday on the conditional veto issued by Gov. Chris Christie on legislation (A-2578) he sponsored to enable New Jerseyans to wager on Atlantic City casino games via the Internet:
“I will be taking a closer look at the governor's conditional veto but at first glance his suggestions appear acceptable to me.
“I appreciate the governor taking the time to study the bill and his willingness to let Atlantic City's casinos take this leap into the future. If we're going to keep our gaming industry competitive, we need Internet gaming. It's that simple.
“I'm going to analyze the conditional veto further, but as of now, I expect to move forward with it and get this done as quickly as possible for the benefit of our casino industry, its employees and our economy.”
