CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - Gov. Brian Sandoval has inked a bill legalizing online gambling in Nevada.

The signing Thursday afternoon capped a dizzying day at the Legislature where lawmakers quickly seized on the measure and passed in through both the Assembly and Senate as an emergency measure.

Nevada wanted to beat New Jersey, its East Coast casino rival, to the online gambling punch.

AB114 authorizes Nevada to enter into compacts with other states to offer Internet poker.

Sandoval signed the bill surrounded by dozens of lawmakers.
