LANGFORD MAY CHALLENGE STATE’S TOURISM DISTRICT PLAN IN ATLANTIC CITY

A federal lawsuit could by filed by Atlantic City Mayor Lorenzo Langford against the state. Langford’s contention is over the state’s planned tourism district in Atlantic City, where the city would lose control of the district. Langford said during a press conference on Thursday that Atlantic City should have the right to govern itself without state interference. The state plan was going to put the Casino Reinvestment Development Authority in charge of the tourism area.
