New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie vetoed a bill Thursday, Feb. 7, that would have allowed Internet gambling in his state to help the struggling casinos. But Christie said he would sign a future bill that sets a 10-year trial period for Internet gambling, and increases the tax rate casinos would pay on their online winnings to 15 percent.
