On the ballot for New Jersey voters is a constitutional amendment regarding casinos. The referendum calls for two new casinos to be constructed in North Jersey. The bill comes as New Jersey has been struggling with economic growth which has taken its toll on the amount of money the state has to fund public schools. The two new casinos must be 72 miles away from Atlantic City and in two separate counties. A few questions arise with this proposal. Certain questions (Where will the casinos be built? How will it be built?) beg to halt the amendment.
