On his last full day in office, Gov. Chris Christie cleared his desk of 150 pieces of legislation Monday.

The state Assembly and Senate rushed to approve a long list of bills in the last month before the two-year session ended on Jan. 9. Christie had to decide before he left office on noon Tuesday whether he would sign the pile of legislation on his desk, or do nothing and let it expire — also known as a "pocket veto."

Among the many bill signings, Christie endorsed regulating the use of drones, disbanding the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals and mandating criminal background checks for people who work in group homes for the disabled.

The ones he vetoed included measures that would have all but banned traveling circuses with exotic animals and granted limited driving privileges to people on the revoked list.

I'm a horseplayer. It's a game to me. I generally don't be more on a race than I make in a few minutes, and I don't bet on many races.

When I do, though, Christie FORCES me to bet with one specific business (TVG) of the many that take legal wagers via the Internet.

And he PROHIBITS me from wagering via the Internet unless I am physically located in NJ.

Time to repeal these laws.
