Governor Christie has signed a revised bill that legalizes internet gambling.

The governor signed the bill into law late Tuesday afternoon just after both chambers of the legislature approved it.

Christie asked for several provisions when he vetoed a previous incarnation of the bill earlier this month.

The provisions include legalizing internet gambling for a 10-year trial period and raising taxes on casinos' winnings.
