    Atlantic City Mayor Lorenzo Langford says he isn't thrilled with a state rescue plan for the struggling gambling resort.

    The state Legislature on Monday approved most of Gov. Chris Christie's plans to help Atlantic City recover from revenue loss and competition from neighboring casinos. The key to the plan is a
    state-run tourism district encompassing the casinos, Boardwalk and other areas, with enhanced police and sanitation services.

    Langford says he did not get all he wanted from the state in terms of concessions, and still holds out the possibility of suing to block the plan.

    The legislation is awaiting action by the governor.
