No N.J. sports betting yet, but Murphy insists he’s not ‘sitting on it’ [Video]

Gov. Phil Murphy said Friday he doesn’t have a timetable for when he’ll act on a bill that would authorize legal sports betting in New Jersey — but he insisted he’s not “sitting on it.”

“I want sports betting,” Murphy said during a news conference in New Brunswick. “Believe me — I want to place the first bet in New Jersey if I can. But we want to make sure we do it right. We just got the bill. We’re going through it, and we’re not gonna sit on it.”

“We’re going to have sports betting sooner than later in New Jersey,” he added. “We’re really excited about that.”

The fate of New Jersey sports betting is now in Murphy’s hands after both houses of the state Legislature voted overwhelmingly Thursday to pass the bill, which would regulate and tax such wagering online and in person at the Garden State’s casinos and racetracks.

The vote came less than a month after
