MIDDLETOWN, NJ - Senator Joe Kyrillos (R-Monmouth), a prime sponsor of New Jersey’s law repealing prohibitions on sports wagering at racetracks and casinos, stated the following after a federal court decided to hear the case that would allow sports betting in New Jersey:

“This court reversal puts us back on the right course to create opportunities here, improve the quality of life, and enhance the state’s economy and job creation and retention at Monmouth Park and Atlantic City. As I’ve said for months, we will prevail, and the repeals that this legislature enacted on a bipartisan basis will ultimately stand.”
