 A bill allowing two new smaller casinos to be licensed in Atlantic City has been passed by the New Jersey Legislature. Now that the measure has been approved, a developer will be able to build a 200-room casino hotel with 20,000 square feet of gaming space; a second developer could build a "staged" casino facility with 30,000 square feet of gaming space and at least 200 hotel rooms, contingent upon it expanding to 500 rooms within five years of being licensed.
