It appears New Jersey may agree to legalize online poker. Gov. Chris Christie seems on board as long as the state's lawmakers can agree to some of his wishes, which include: -- Increasing the tax rate on online poker operators from the proposed 10 percent to 15 percent -- Putting more of the state's revenue into a program to combat problem gambling -- Adding a sunset provision that would make the law expire in 10 years if it's not renewed by the legislature. It would seem that online poker is likely a go in New Jersey if lawmakers can agree to those amendments to the bill. Read more at PokerFuse.
