A GOOD BET FOR FUNDING OPEN SPACE PRESERVATION

A GOOD BET FOR FUNDING OPEN-SPACE PRESERVATION
(Letter to the Editor, Times of Trenton, by Assemblywoman Caroline Casagrande)

New Jersey’s horse racing and casino industries continue to face stiff competition from other states in the battle for gaming dollars. With word of another casino closure, it’s way past time to fight for that revenue and develop a new business model that brings together these important industries. As a result, I am sponsoring legislation A3194 that will bolster both industries while creating a stable source of funding for open-space preservation without raising taxes.

The measure allows slot machines at racetracks while dedicating a share of the revenues to save open space. A formula would be developed that would ensure the revenues would be distributed equitably.

The equine industry is crucial to the state’s economy. Our horse farms support other businesses, from tack and feed shops to veterinary practices. A Rutgers Equine Science Center study shows the horse industry contributes $1.1 billion to New Jersey’s economy annually and generates nearly 13,000 jobs.

Likewise, the importance of the casino industry to the state’s economy cannot be minimized. It’s time to embrace a business model that will enable both casinos and horse tracks to thrive and compete with New York, Pennsylvania and Delaware. My measure is a step forward in that direction. The creation of a stable funding source for open-space preservation is an added bonus that makes this legislation a perfect trifecta.

Caroline Casagrande,
Freehold
