SWEENEY OPENS DOOR TO EXPANDING CASINOS TO NORTH JERSEY

NJ SENATE PRESIDENT STEPHEN SWEENEY OPENS DOOR TO EXPANDING CASINOS TO NORTH JERSEY
LAST UPDATED: WEDNESDAY, JULY 2, 2014, 10:32 PM

THE RECORD

State Senate President Stephen Sweeney, one of the staunchest defenders of Atlantic City’s gambling monopoly, said Wednesday that he has held private discussions with officials in North Jersey for the past year about allowing casinos in the northern part of the state.

Sweeney’s revelation — made during a meeting with The Record’s editorial board — is at odds with the South Jersey Democrat’s public statements in which he has adamantly defended a five-year moratorium, until early 2016, on any discussion of casino gambling in the state beyond Atlantic City. The motivation for that ban, developed in partnership with Governor Christie, was to give the struggling seaside resort a chance to get back on its feet.

But on Wednesday, Sweeney said there is a “very real possibility” that a statewide proposal on expanded gaming could be placed on the November 2015 ballot.

Roger Gros, the publisher of Global Gaming Business magazine, who has closely followed the Atlantic City casino industry for more than three decades, said he was not surprised by Sweeney’s comments.

“A casino in the Meadowlands would be good for the state because it would partially recapture some of the gaming revenue that has been going to New York and Pennsylvania after casinos opened there,” Gros said, adding: “The ball is in the court of Atlantic City casino operators now” to change their tune and seek a role in jointly managing a North Jersey casino.
