A day after the New Jersey legislature unanimously approved a bill to legalize sports betting, Governor Phil Murphy says he won’t be rushed into signing it.

Murphy says he’s giving the bill the same level of review as all other legislation that reaches his desk.

Senator Declan O’Scanlon can’t understand the delay.

Applying for a driver’s license in New Jersey, or renewing one, would automatically register you to vote if Governor Phil Murphy signs a bill passed by both houses of the legislature.

The measure allows automatic registration to be expanded so it would happen when filing documents with other state agencies.

Assemblywoman Serena DiMaso is among the Republican lawmakers who voted against it, calling it costly and unnecessary.
