The Casino Revenue Fund was established under the 1977 law and constitutional amendment permitting casino gambling in Atlantic City. Revenue generated by casino gross receipts is deposited into the Fund for programs assisting seniors and persons with disabilities. The Casino Revenue Fund Advisory Commission was legislated in 1992 to provide recommendations to the State Legislature concerning the Casino Revenue Fund utilization.
“Ensuring that revenue is being utilized in the most effective manner possible is an obligation we must fulfill for those seniors and persons with disabilities who depend on Casino Revenue-funded programs,” said Assemblywoman Gove. “Such critical programs include Transportation Assistance for Senior Citizens and Disabled Residents, PAAD and the Statewide Birth Defects Registry.
Assemblywoman Gove further remarked, “Serving on this Commission will dovetail with responsibilities as a member of the Assembly Human Services Committee. Senior citizens compose a large segment of my constituency and this appointment will allow me to more effectively represent the interests of our most vulnerable citizens along with my 9th District legislative colleagues Senator Chris Connors and Assemblyman Brian Rumpf.”
