New Jersey Budget Fight Puts Casinos at Risk for Temporary Closures

New Jersey lawmakers' debate over the budget could lead to a state shutdown and the closure of the Garden State's casinos and racetracks – unless Gov. Phil Murphy heeds a state senator's call to sign an executive order.

On top of asking the governor for his signature to preempt any casino closures, N.J. Sen. Chris Brown (R - Atlantic) is working with other lawmakers to prepare legislation that would keep the casinos and racetracks open despite a state shutdown, according to the Press of Atlantic City.

If a budget is not passed by June 30, the start of the next fiscal year, the state shutdown occurs.
