On Friday, Chris Christie (New Jersey Governor) offered his support for the much debated gambling expansion plan earlier proposed by Senate President Stephen Sweeney. According to the proposal, two new casinos will be established in North Jersey in order to revitalize state’s gambling industry and also to blunt contest from neighboring states.
A same plan was given by
Assembly Speaker Vincent Prieto and Christie’s support for Sweeney’s bill ended in the exchange of coarse words between the two equaling parties earlier on Friday. The dispute partly stalks from a provision in both proposals as who would run the two new gambling establishments.
Under Assembly-backed program, only one of the new casinos would be controlled by an Atlantic City operator. And Sweeney asked that both North Jersey gambling venues to be operated by firms that have already been offering their services within the border of the state.
Recently, in a news conference, Sen. Sweeney stated that if the vote is delayed,and this would put the state’s economic future at grave risk.
Assembly Speaker Vincent Prieto stated that if Gov. Christie had spent more time in New Jersey instead of campaigning throughout United States for president, he would have actually seen that the Assembly-suggested proposal was much better one for the state.
