New Jersey bill would OK out-of-state bets

An Internet gambling bill approved Tuesday by a New Jersey Senate committee would let Atlantic City casinos take bets from gamblers in other states and countries, as long as federal and state authorities agree it's legal.

New Jersey has been racing to get Internet gambling up and running and stake an early claim to leadership in a potential multi-billion-dollar industry.

Even as the bill edges closer to approval, its scope is growing. It would allow bets to be accepted from other states and nations if the state Division of Gaming Enforcement determines it doesn't violate federal laws.
