New Jersey to Vote on Casino Expansion

New Jersey to Vote on Casino Expansion

Steve Sweeney, the New Jersey Senate President, has said that there are plans for residents in the state to vote on expanding casino gambling outside of Atlantic City.

A referendum is expected to take place in November 2016 on whether to approve new casinos in some of the state’s northern counties. It is thought that new casinos would generate taxes that would help boost the state’s horseracing industry.

Sweeney said that expanding gambling is the best way to revitalise the industry that is vital to the state’s economy. However, the Atlantic City Mayor, Dan Guardian, said that it could lead to further closures of Atlantic City casinos, four of which have closed in recent times. The Casino Association of New Jersey has also issued a similar warning saying that it is the last thing the casino community needs.
