Meadowlands Casino Mulled for Super Bowl

New Jersey Senate Majority Leader Loretta Weinberg likes the idea of a temporary casino at the Meadowlands in the week leading up to the Super Bowl.

Weinberg tells radio station WCBS in New York it could bring in more visitors and money for the state.

Assemblyman Timothy Eustace floated the idea last week at a hearing on the possibility of bringing casino gambling to the Meadowlands.

Gov. Chris Christie and Senate President Steve Sweeney have opposed any expansion of casino gambling while the state tries to help revive Atlantic City’s casinos.

Weinberg says it’s possible one of Atlantic City’s casinos could operate the Meadowlands’ casino.

Eustace acknowledged state voters would have to approve a ballot referendum to expand gambling. The 2014 Super Bowl will be played at MetLife Stadium.
