New Jersey's Bill S-12 Redesigns the Regulatory System for the Gaming Industry


In a boost to New Jersey's casino and tourism industries, the state has enacted three new laws, and a fourth bill is pending before New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie. Links to additional Alerts summarizing the other pieces of legislation follow this piece.

On February 1, 2011, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie signed into law Bill S-12. This legislation fundamentally redesigns the state's regulatory system over casinos and persons doing business with the gaming industry and substantially amends the state's Casino Control Act (the "Act"). The bill also significantly alters the authority of the Casino Control Commission ("Commission") and the Division of Gaming Enforcement ("Division").

The Alert below summarizes how S-12 affects the responsibilities of the Commission and Division, as well as its applicability to casino licensees, equipment manufacturers, investors, lenders and other vendors who conduct business within New Jersey's gaming industry.
