Christie gets sports gambling bill
Governor Christie has been handed a bill that would make it legal for residents to bet on professional or collegiate sporting events.
The state legislature approved the measure Monday.
Christie is expected to sign the bill into law.
However, New Jersey will have to go to court to overturn the federal law that currently bans sports betting in all but four states.
