Whelan Statement on A.C. Recovery Legislation

Today, Senator Jim Whelan (D - Atlantic) released the following statement after the Senate approved the Atlantic City recovery bill package:

"While today's passage of Atlantic City recovery legislation is just the beginning in the fight to stabilize the city's finances, we have provided a much-needed lifeline to Atlantic City in order to avoid bankruptcy. It is now up to city government, the Mayor and City Council, to make very difficult decisions and offer a clear plan to balance its budget. I strongly urge the governor to sign these bills into law as soon as possible so we can begin to move forward."
