TRENTON - 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.

Last week, Christie vetoed New Jersey's second attempt at legalizing internet gambling. 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.
