Senator Joe Kyrillos (R-Monmouth), a prime sponsor of New Jersey’s recently enacted law repealing prohibitions on sports wagering at racetracks and casinos, stated the following after a federal court’s ruling late last week to prevent Monmouth Park from accepting sports wagers:

“This was another unacceptable court ruling to the direct detriment of New Jersey residents, their quality of life, the state’s economy and the creation and retention of jobs at Monmouth Park and in Atlantic City. I fully expect we will prevail in our continued fight for New Jerseyans, and that the repeals we enacted will ultimately stand.”
