ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. -- The administration of Democratic New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy plans to leave a state takeover of Atlantic City in place for the full five years that his Republican predecessor envisioned.
Control of the cash-strapped gambling resort town was seized in 2016 under Republican Gov. Chris Christie and a Democrat-controlled Legislature.
The timetable laid out Tuesday by Lt. Gov. Sheila Oliver would keep the takeover in place through 2021.
Mayor Frank Gilliam Jr. says he supports the timetable.
