Governor's Atlantic City rescue plan is making its way through the legislature

Revenue decline of 10% is expected for Atlantic City casinos

(US).- Atlantic City's 11 casinos have just finished their fourth straight year of plunging revenues and shrinking market share. Figures of the state Casino Control Commission are expected to show the nation's second-largest gambling market has lost nearly a third of its business since the end of 2006.

A

decline in the range of 10 % for 2010 is expected.

The big difference this year is that New Jersey lawmakers are preparing radical surgery for their ailing patient. Governor Chris Christie's Atlantic City rescue plan is making its way through the legislature, with key votes scheduled for Monday afternoon.

It includes a state-run tourism district in the casino zone, and less regulation for the gambling halls.
