06 Dec: Buono Bill To Encourage Non-Gaming Development In Atlantic City Passes Senate

TRENTON – A bill by Senator Barbara Buono that would provide grants for non-gaming development in Atlantic City passed the Senate today.

“Atlantic City is one of the jewels of the Jersey Shore – it is home not only to some of the best gaming in the country, but also has one of the best beaches on the Atlantic Coast,” said Senator Buono, D-Middlesex and Chair of the Senate Wagering, Tourism and Historical Preservation Committee. “The State is now in a position where it can add to the list of attractions and make Atlantic City a world-class location for dining and shopping through the promotion of new retail entertainment districts.”
