Democratic lawmakers will convene on Friday in the Meadowlands for the second meeting of the legislative gaming summit called by Senate President Stephen M. Sweeney and Assembly Speaker Sheila Y. Oliver to examine the recommendations of the Governor’s Advisory Commission on Gaming, Sports and Entertainment.
The hearing, to be held at Pegasus West in the Meadowlands, will provide lawmakers with an opportunity to solicit input from stakeholders on horseracing, the New Jersey Sports and Exposition Authority and the stalled Xanadu project.
Legislators are planning a total of three fact-finding meetings which bring together lawmakers, industry leaders and policy experts to publicly examine the recommendations of the Governor’s advisory commission, which were released in July. The first forum was held last month in Atlantic City and dedicated in large part to discussing the state’s gaming industry.
State Senator Jeff Van Drew and Assemblyman Matt Milam are expected to take part in the conference.
A third meeting is being planned.
