Governor Murphy is following the lead of his GOP predecessor Chris Christie and leaving the state takeover of Atlantic City in place for five years. That takes the takeover to 2021, as laid out Tuesday by Lt. Gov. Sheila Oliver. The law enacted during the Christie administration was a five year statute. The hope is that at the statute’s conclusion, there will be enough evidence of progress in Atlantic City to warrant the legislature ending the takeover. It gives the state such powers as overturning decisions of city council, overriding or abolishing city agencies and selling assets, to name a few.
