NJ State Senator: “God Bless Atlantic City, But It’s Been a Failure”
According to PolitickerNJ.com, State Senator Mike Doherty of New Jersey's 23rd district in the northwestern part of the state, refused to support Senate President Steve Sweeney’s North Jersey casino referendum bill.
The report says Doherty doesn't like the part of Sweeney's bill that would bring tax revenue from North Jersey casinos back to Atlantic City.
On the floor of the senate, Doherty reportedly said, “God bless Atlantic City, but it’s been a failure." Doherty went on to say that revenue from North Jersey casinos should be used for programs all over the state.
