N.J. gaming ‘summit’ set for August in Atlantic City

N.J. gaming ‘summit’ set for August in Atlantic City

Legislators will examine future of gambling, entertainment, sports and horse racing

The first meeting of the joint state Senate and Assembly "gaming summit'' to examine the future of legalized gambling, entertainment, professional sports and horse racing in New Jersey will be Aug. 6 at the Atlantic City Convention Center.

The session will be dedicated to reviewing the report issued Wednesday by Gov. Chris Christie's special gaming commission on Wednesday. John Hanson, the commission's chairman, has been invited to attend.

The commission report spells out a series of moves for restructuring the way the state's gaming, horse racing and entertainment centers operate. However, Sen. James Whelan (D-Atlantic) and Assemblyman John Burzichelli (D-Gloucester) the co-chairmen of the summit, said the initial focus will be to fill in what they sees as the report's gaps on gambling in Atlantic City and create a plan for moving the industry forward through new product offerings.
