Plan would change casino oversight in NJ

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) - November 5, 2010

Draft legislation obtained by The Press of Atlantic City shows the Casino Control Commission would be limited to casino licensing. Most of its current duties would be transferred to the Gaming Enforcement Division, which handles investigations and enforcement.

Casino inspectors would no longer be required by law to on casino floors 24 hours a day.

The casino industry funds both agencies. Savings under the proposed bill crafted by the Christie administration would fund new state efforts to promote and revitalize Atlantic City.

Christie has called for greater state intervention in Atlantic City.
