Sen. Joe Kyrillos (R-Monmouth), a sponsor of New Jersey’s recently enacted law repealing prohibitions on sports wagering at racetracks and casinos, responded to a federal court’s restraining order that will prevent Monmouth Park from starting to accept sports wagers as planned:

“I am disappointed that the temporary restraining order imposed by a federal court will prevent Monmouth Park from starting to accept wagers on sporting events this weekend as was planned. I believe, however, the court will find after a more thorough review that New Jersey’s repeal of prohibitions on sports betting at our racetracks and casinos is compliant with both federal law and the guidance provided in previous federal court rulings.”
