The nation's highest court clearing the way to legalized sports betting. Here in New Jersey and in other states, gamblers are queuing up at the starting line, getting ready for state lawmakers to fire the starter pistol and let the sports betting begin. Our guest, Senator Vin Gopal, will explain what needs to happen before New Jerseyans can start placing their bets.

A controversial issue getting attention again this week - Affordable housing. Assembly Republican Leader Jon Bramnick is raising concerns about the cost to municipalities, plus he'll talk with host Eric Landskroner about restoring the homestead rebate.

Four months into his first term, and the rift between Gov. Murphy and Senate President Steve Sweeney only seems to be growing. Could this hurt the budget process? Brigid Harrison, professor of political science and law at Montclair State University, talks about the issue.
