‘Temp’ Super Bowl casino may get more permanent

Topics: From the Wires,

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Plans for a temporary casino in the Meadowlands may get more permanent.

Backers of a temporary “pop-up” casino at New Jersey’s Meadowlands Sports complex in the week leading up to the 2014 Super Bowl may be backing off that plan in favor of one that would permanently allow gambling in places beyond Atlantic City.

A state Assembly panel was scheduled to discuss the “pop-up” casino proposal Thursday, but did not.

Instead, Chairman Ruben Ramos Jr. suggested expanding the proposed temporary casino referendum to amend the state Constitution to permit gambling at the Meadowlands and other New Jersey locations.

Gov. Chris Christie has said he’ll give Atlantic City five years to regain its footing before considering gambling elsewhere in the state.
