ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) — Internet gambling would be allowed to take place for at least five more years under the latest proposal by New Jersey lawmakers. On Wednesday evening, legislators abandoned a move they made just a day earlier to drastically cut the extension of internet casino gambling in the state. An original bill reauthorizing online betting would have given it another 10 years, but lawmakers sliced that to just two years on Tuesday. After an outcry from casinos, their political allies and business groups in southern New Jersey, lawmakers amended the bill yet again to extend internet gambling to five years. No explanation was given for the changes.
