NJ Gov: No Sports Betting On Memorial Day

Savvy sports fans will not be gambling on baseball, basketball, or any other athletic event this Memorial Day. Monmouth Park had said it was going to begin taking bets on sports at the end of this month.  But Governor Phil Murphy has pumped the brakes and says New Jerseyans will have to wait till at least next month.  He argues that state lawmakers need to come up with rules and regulations for how sports betting will work.  The state Senate and Assembly have scheduled to vote on legislation June 7th. Gamblers will get the green light after the bill is passed and the governor signs it.
