TRENTON, N.J. (AP) – Voters will be asked in November whether to approve two new casinos in the northern part of the state under a ballot question authorized Monday by the Legislature.
It will mark the first time in 40 years that the state’s voters will have a say about expanding casino gambling in New Jersey. And it could have far-reaching consequences for Atlantic City, which has already lost more than half its casino revenue to competitors in neighboring states.
On a packed general election ballot that also will include presidential candidates, voters will be asked whether to amend the state constitution to repeal a provision – http://www.Bing.com/search?q=provision&form=MSNNWS&mkt=en-us&pq=provision that limits casinos only to Atlantic City. It would authorize two new casinos in separate counties at least 72 miles from Atlantic City.
It doesn’t specify locations, but the two most-talked-about proposals are in the Meadowlands sports complex in East Rutherford, where the NFL’s Jets and Giants play, and in Jersey City, just across the Hudson River from Manhattan.
“This is a very historic day for New Jersey,” said Assemblyman Ralph Caputo, an Essex County Democrat and former casino worker. “In 1976, casinos were approved for Atlantic City. It was a monopoly that existed for many, many years; many people benefited. But conditions change, and when conditions change and you don’t adapt, you become a dinosaur and you become extinct.”
