Lawmakers Mull Idea of Having Casino in Meadowlands, Minutes From Manhattan

TRENTON, N.J. — (Associated Press) - Some New Jersey lawmakers want to study whether casino gambling should be expanded to the Meadowlands sports complex in East Rutherford.

A state Assembly committee is scheduled to discuss a bill Thursday that would create a commission to study the issue. But the committee isn’t expected to vote on the measure.

Casino gambling expansion proposals have been hotly opposed by southern New Jersey lawmakers. They fear it would destroy the already-struggling Atlantic City casino market.

The state is halfway through a five-year period of incentives and improvements that Gov. Chris Christie instituted to help Atlantic City before considering whether casinos should be allowed elsewhere.

A 13-member panel would evaluate how well those reforms are working, and would consider the future prospect of a casino in Bergen County.
