Governor Signs Two Bills To Help NJ Horse Racing Industry
Monmouth County Republican State Senator Jennifer Beck is applauding Governor Chris Christie for signing two bills aimed at giving New Jersey's Horse Racing industry a much needed boost.
Beck is the prime sponsor of bill (s-3115) that establishes a pilot program to allow betting in bars and restaurants on horse races. The second measure (S-3185) extends the deadline for issuing the remainder of the state's off-track wagering (OTW) licenses.
In a press release, Beck says the bills signed by the Governor are important to Monmouth County and the entire state, which benefit from the open space preserved and jobs created as a result of horse farming and racing."
