What's with this part:

"Prohibit the Motor Vehicle Commission from inspecting buses on casino-owned property and designated casino parking, pick-up, or drop-off locations (A-2845). Sponsored by Burzichelli, Milam, Albano and Riley. It was approved 75-0 and goes to the Senate."

Still not sure how this is really going to make that much of a difference when there is no horse racing left in the state....when Freehold sells it's property to a developer, when Hanson gets his hands on the Meadowlands....no tracks = no racing.

I always laugh when I see these people who are "supposed" to be informed keep "hanging their hats" on getting sports betting......Let me explain that to them in 5 words....."IT'S NOT GOING TO HAPPEN"......Never, Nada, Zip, Zilch, No Chance.....Sports Betting is BANNED by Federal Law......A state has as much chance of overturning a federal ban then we do of having a corruption free government.....Delaware tried it and couldn't even get the top court to hear the case......Let alone side with them and they were already partially grandfathered in......What people don't understand is that states get billions of dollars to fund their ridiculous budgets from the Federal Government and the Feds do not take nicely to states trying to overturn their power.....If they were to somehow win the case......Which won't happen......The Feds will just withhold millions of dollars in funding from the state as "punishment"......The Feds constantly strong arm states to adapt their "policies" by threatening to cut off funding......They did it with speed limits, among many other policies.....As states who didn't come on board with the 55 mph speed limit would potentially lose millions of Federal Highway money

Look at what they do in California with the Medical Marijuana laws...every so often they bust down doors and create all sorts of havoc....
