What Is Trenton’s Plan To Expand Casino Gaming Into North New Jersey?
In March, Trenton politicians passed State Concurrent Resolution No. 1 (SCR1), a resolution that “Proposes constitutional amendment to authorize Legislature to permit by law establishment and operation of casinos in certain counties.” You can read the resolution in its entirety on the New Jersey Legislature website. This referendum, to be voted on by New Jersey citizens this November, would allow for the expansion of two new casinos north of Atlantic City. The casinos would then be taxed, with a portion of the revenue given to rehabilitate Atlantic City.
