The New Jersey Senate Wagering, Tourism and Historic Preservation Committee voted unanimously to approve a bill that would transfer control of the Atlantic City Convention Center and Boardwalk Hall to the Atlantic City Convention and Visitors Authority. The buildings currently are under the jurisdiction of the New Jersey Sports and Exposition Authority and operated under contract by the ACCVA. The bill has been forwarded for approval to the NJ Senate Budget and Appropriations Committee.
