But this聽isn’t going to stop there. You can, ahem, bet on that.聽

Soon, you won’t have to make that drive to a racetrack or a casino — you’ll be able to Jordan Crawford Womens Jersey visit a betting parlor in a shopping mall near your hometown. And, maybe sooner still, even that short trip will be unnecessary.

The legalization of sports gambling requires an important policy choice, but the choice is not ours to make, Justice Samuel Alito, a New Jersey native, said in the opinion. Congress can regulate sports gambling directly, but if it elects not to do so, each State is free to act on its own.聽

New Jersey is ready to be the first to act.聽 Monmouth Park hopes to be operational in time for the NBA Finals, a much needed boost for its bottom line. Lesniak promised that he’d be first on line when the racetrack’s sports book opens and a new era in American sports begins.聽

It will all seem crazy at first, but soon, it will become the new normal. And, yes, you can bet on that.聽

Jay Bromley Authentic Jersey PASPA was declared unconstitutional in the 7-2聽decision, meaning it will be up to states 鈥?including New Jersey, which has sought to establish sports gambling for years 鈥?to decide whether to allow its residents to bet on sports.聽

Here’s a breakdown of what the ruling by the nation’s highest court means:聽

PASPA was signed into law by President George H.W. Bush in 1992 and went into effect in January 1993. Nevada 鈥?the only state at the time the bill became law that had widespread state-sponsored sports bettors 鈥?and three other states with more limited betting (Oregon, Delaware and Montana) were grandfathered in.聽

PASPA didn’t outlaw sports betting because that was already illegal. Rather, PASPA banned states 鈥?outside those given exemptions 鈥?from regulating (and taxing) sports betting.聽

Despite PASPA’s existence, the American Gaming Association (AGA) estimates at least $150 billion a year is gambled on sports in the U.S. and 97% of that amount was bet illegally.聽

With PASPA stricken down, states now can establish their own regulated聽sports betting.聽
