Biz groups to Murphy: Let us do conventions in Atlantic City

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) — Business, casino and political officials are calling on New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy to ease coronavirus regulations enough to allow conventions and trade shows to resume in Atlantic City. Saying the convention industry generates nearly $2 billion in annual revenue for Atlantic City, the groups on Friday asked the Democratic governor to allow meetings to utilize available space at 50% of capacity, as is permitted on the gambling floors of the city’s nine casinos. Michael Chait, president of the Greater Atlantic City Chamber of Commerce, says a casino floor can be half full, but only 25 people can occupy an adjacent meeting room. Murphy's administration had no immediate response.
