Nevada became the first country in the US to legalize online gambling, with its Governor Sandoval signing bill AB114 earlier today and passing what has been described as an “emergency measure.” The bill includes provisions which would allow Nevada to enter legal compacts with other states, thereby allowing their residents to gamble online as well. The rush to pass the bill was driven by a similar bill under consideration in New Jersey and Nevada’s desire to be the first to offer interstate  gambling. [Source: Las Vegas Sun]
