Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie

If someone wants to stop us, then let them try to stop us. We want to work with the casinos and horse racing industry to get it implemented.

Am I expecting there may be legal action taken against us to try to prevent it? Yes. But I have every confidence we’re going to be successful.

– Governor Chris Christie, commenting on his plans to defy a federal ban on sports betting in New Jersey.
