Tourism district

    New Jersey’s Assembly and Senate enacted emergency votes last night, which led to an agreement about the Atlantic City tourism district. Pending expected approval by Gov. Chris Christie, the deal ends a lengthy debate.

    Two bills will create a tourism district run by the Casino Reinvestment Development Authority and repeal casino regulations, transferring powers from the Casino Control Commission to the state Division of Gaming Enforcement.

    The Press of Atlantic City has details on both bills.
