August 17, 2021 News 12 New Jersey

The state takeover of Atlantic City was recently extended for four more years. State officials tell News 12 New Jersey that the goal of the state’s involvement is to eventually make the effort unnecessary. But those involved in the effort say that they don’t like the connotation of the word “takeover.” They say that it is more of a partnership and collaboration.
