Atlantic City Tourism Hearing Planned For This Week

The Chairman of the panel is urging members of the public to attend the hearing.

Assemblyman Matt Milam says “I’m looking forward to hearing more about the city’s tourism district and what the Legislature can do to rev up Atlantic City and the South Jersey economy. The success of Atlantic City impacts not just the local region, but the state, so it’s imperative that we find ways to keep the ‘World’s Favorite Playground’ a top destination for visitors, especially as more competition creeps up in neighboring states.”

He adds “tourism is one of the largest and fastest growing services industries in the world, and has an undeniable impact on our economic well-being. We must continue to cultivate this jewel of New Jersey. It’s not simply about promoting our heritage, but strengthening our economy.”

The hearing will take place on Wednesday, September 19, 2012 at 11:00 a.m., at Dante Hall Theater-Richard Stockton College, 14 North Mississippi Avenue, in Atlantic City.

John Palmieri, the Executive Director of the Casino Reinvestment Development Authority, is among those slated to testify.
