Face  Potential Threats?

CCSNJ Opposes North Jersey Casinos at Public Hearing

On February 29, Debra P. DiLorenzo, President & CEO, testified against  SCR-1 (Sarlo/Sweeney)which would allow for the expansion of gaming outside of Atlantic City, at a Senate Budget & Appropriations Committee public hearing.  Today's hearing marked the fifth time the CCSNJ has verbally testified against this measure since December of last year.

In her remarks, DiLorenzo stated, "It is indisputable that expanding gaming within New Jersey will only result in more of what our region has already lived through - more casino closures, more jobs lost, less vendor money being spent in the region and higher unemployment."
