Legislation sponsored by Senator Jennifer Beck (R-12) that will make it easier for both homeowners and businesses to install clean-energy producing solar panels was signed into law by Governor Chris Christie.

Senator Jennifer Beck, Assemblyman Declan O’Scanlon and Assemblywoman Caroline Casagrande call on the New Jersey Sports and Exposition Authority to seek proposals to place video lottery terminals at the Meadowlands, following a recent $600 million offer from a group of casino industry executives.

“This proposal to pay the SEA $600 million shows that placing VLTs or slots at racetracks could be very profitable for the State of New Jersey,” said Beck. “In the midst of our fiscal crisis in the State, an offer like this cannot necessarily be dismissed out of hand. However, an offer like this cannot also simply be accepted without an open bidding process. That is why I believe that the Authority should seek similar proposals so that it can determine which of these proposals are best for the State and New Jersey’s racing industry.”
