Election aftermath: New Jersey's sports betting amendment appears approved
The measure called for authorizing "wagering at casinos or gambling houses in Atlantic City and at current or former running and harness horse racetracks on the results of professional, certain college, or amateur sport or athletic events."
Despite being referred to the ballot by the state legislature and calling for a constitutional amendment, the measure is not binding. Sports betting will not be allowed in the state until a federal law that limits sports betting in four states is repealed or overturned.
However, if the federal law is overturned then the measure will become binding and amend the state constitution.
