March Madness Would Bring in Millions to State Economy if N.J. had Sports Betting

March Madness Would Bring in Millions to State Economy if N.J. had Sports Betting
BY ALISE RODERER
SPECIAL TO NEWJERSEYNEWSROOM.COM

ATLANTIC CITY – Senate President Steve Sweeney, Senator Jim Whelan and Assemblyman Vincent Mazzeo joined by Atlantic City Mayor Don Guardian, today highlighted what legalized sports betting would mean to both Atlantic City and New Jersey’s economy, specifically during March Madness. They did so at the iconic Irish Pub in Atlantic City.

“If New Jersey had sports betting, March Madness would bring millions of dollars into Atlantic City and the state’s economy,” said Sweeney (D-Gloucester, Salem, Cumberland). “At a time of the year when the region’s tourism could use a boost, the hotels and casinos would be filled. Restaurants and bars, like the Irish Pub, would be overflowing with people and the boardwalk would be filled with visitors. It’s a flat out win for our state and we hope the Supreme Court will recognize that.”
