New Jersey officials are taking stock of efforts to improve Atlantic City.

A state Assembly panel on Wednesday will review efforts to improve public safety and cleanliness in the city's tourism district. The state is overseeing the efforts through a beefed up Casino Reinvestment Development Authority.

Their success or failure will go a long way toward determining whether New Jersey eventually allows casino gambling in the Meadowlands and other parts of the state.

Gov. Chris Christie says the reforms need a few years to succeed.

Efforts so far include roving "Boardwalk ambassadors" to assist visitors, additional trash and recycling containers in public areas, and beefed-up sanitation sweeps.

The agency is also weighing numerous non-casino development proposals for Atlantic City.
