New Jersey to legalize online poker?

A New Jersey state senator has introduced a bill that would legalize online poker in the state. He estimates there are more than 500,000 players in the state currently. The bill would grant licenses to the many brick and mortar casino's in the state to operate their own online cardrooms. There is talk of similar legislation in California and Nevada. I'm a big supporter of any form of licensed and regulated online poker in the USA, even if it is (at first) limited to people in any given state. It will be a step in the right direction. Good luck senator!
