Senator Raymond Lesniak, author of the NJ iGaming bill is a long-standing proponent of revitalising the Atlantic City casino industry by allowing sports betting and online gambling and thus creating a gaming technology hub in New Jersey. One of his most recent successes is the passage of the sports betting bill that challenges the federal law. The bill was just signed on January 18 by the governor.
Lesniak is now determined to push his efforts to get the iGaming bill passed and signed. This time around he might be successful as Governor Christie, following the favourable DoJ ruling, changed his stance and has already given his support for it.
