Polistina Opposes Legislation Which Will Give Casinos Millions Taken from Atlantic County Taxpayers

Following a December 3rd analysis by the Office of Legislative Services which details a shocking reduction in revenue that would be provided to Atlantic County taxpayers as a result of S-4007, Senator Vince Polistina today expressed his opposition to the new PILOT legislation.

“The casino operators and Murphy administration made a deal with Atlantic County taxpayers when the original PILOT legislation was enacted and the litigation settled,” said Polistina (R-2). “The legislation and settlement would result in a $165 million total PILOT for 2021, with $22.275 million going to Atlantic County. Now they want to change the deal to drop the amount going to Atlantic County taxpayers to just $17.55 million, a nearly $5 million decrease. This is completely unfair given the promises made to Atlantic County taxpayers and the many challenges we have in this region.”

“Casino workers shouldn’t have to be exposed to dangerous and unhealthy conditions in their workplace just to appease an increasingly small minority of customers who want to smoke while they gamble,” said Polistina (R-Atlantic). “When New Jerseyans are saying overwhelmingly they would prefer smoke-free casinos, it’s clear that the old logic that banning smoking would be bad for business no longer holds true. It’s time for the Legislature to act.”
