A spokesperson for Caesars (NASDAQ: CZR) issued the following statement on Thursday:
"We applaud the governor's leadership in supporting modernization of the gaming industry in New Jersey through his broad support of legalizing internet gaming with his recommended changes to the bill he vetoed today. With those changes and New Jersey's longstanding commitment to the highest standards of integrity, revised legislation would expand the ways in which customers can interact with us."
