The 45 days Governor Christie had to take action on the New Jersey “Intrastate Internet gambling bill” have passed, yet the Governor’s office decided to postpone the decision to next week, March 3rd.  

The 45 Days
The Intrastate Internet Gambling Bill passed the New Jersey General Assembly and Senate on Jan. 10th. To turn the bill into a law the Governor needed to sign it, or refrain from taking action for a period of 45 days after the approval date, in which case the bill would become law by default.

1-Week Delay
With this in mind everybody was anxious to see what Christie would do before, or on, Feb. 24th. Much to everyone’s dissatisfaction, the Governor’s office announced the decision would be delayed by one week, using a legislative recess in New Jersey as a reason to do so.

Governor’s Veto
There is a lot of speculation going on in the media as to whether or not Christie might veto the bill. In an article in the New York Post Senator Ray Lesniak, who sponsored the bill, was quoted saying that in case of a veto he would not attempt to override it.

In case Christie vetoes the bill, it would go back to the legislature and it would need a two-thirds majority to pass again to override the veto. 

Despite the fact that the bill passed with an even higher margin on Jan 10th, it would be unlikely that the Republicans in the legislature would allow their Republican Governor’s veto to be overridden.
