ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) — New Jersey lawmakers plan to move quickly to adopt an Internet gambling bill now that Gov. Chris Christie has laid his cards on the table.

After years of ambivalence about online betting, Christie last week vetoed New Jersey's second attempt at legalizing it. But the governor said he would sign a bill that made changes like a 10-year trial period and higher taxes on the casinos' online winnings.

Leaders of the state Senate and Assembly say they will vote Feb. 26 on Christie's recommendations.

New Jersey would become the third state in the nation, after Nevada and Delaware, to legalize Internet gambling.
