Dancer bill to let NJ residents place bets when out of state advances
« Return to News
Dancer’s bill (A-2355) would give New Jersey residents the ability to place wagers on horse racing even when they are out of state. Currently, a New Jersey resident must be physically present in the state to place a wager.
“All New Jersey residents should be allowed to place wagers on horse racing no matter where they are, whether it’s online or through an agency,” stated Dancer (R-Ocean). “With the changes in technology, our access to place wagers has changed and the law should reflect those changes. It’s also critical we do everything we can do to keep our staple industries afloat during and after the coronavirus pandemic.”
Dancer’s bill unanimously passed the Assembly with a 73-0 vote. (SBOANJ)
