New Jersey residents out-of-state on business or vacation may still be able to wager on horse races

According to the publication Standard Bred Canada, the New Jersey House of Assembly has just approved a bill introduced by Assemblyman Ron Dancer which will allow New Jersey residents temporarily absent from the state to wager on New Jersey horse races.

Devoted fans of horse racing will be able to enjoy the most exciting two minutes in sports in New Jersey even though they may briefly be outside the state, Dancer told the publication.

This legislation allows an authorized account wagering licensee in the state to accept a New Jersey resident's bet, just as they do now, even though that person may be away on business or vacation.

Advances in technology no longer necessitate that a resident be physically present to experience racing in New Jersey. This is an opportunity to expand on the capabilities of existing account wagering systems, add more convenience to the process and keep New Jersey's horse racing industry competitive with other states.

Dancer's bill, A-2914, stipulates that the jurisdiction of where a New Jersey resident would place a wager on the result of a horse race must be consistent with the law of that jurisdiction or with federal law.

Current law only allows New Jersey residents to use the account wagering system while they are within the state's borders.

Assemblyman John Burzichelli joined Dancer in sponsoring the bipartisan legislation, which still has to pass the state Senate.
