ATLANTIC CITY - New Jersey's Casino Reinvestment Development Authority is considering the possibility of building a permanent stage on Atlantic City's beach following the success of Sunday's Maroon 5 concert.

Board Vice Chairman Robert Mulcahy III said at Tuesday's meeting that a permanent stage "makes it very easy to schedule five or six of these over the summer."

The Press of Atlantic City reports plans for a permanent stage are on hold until officials hear if Gov. Chris Christie intends to sign a bill passed this summer by the state legislature that would virtually defund the agency.

Atlantic City Mayor Don Guardian says the CRDA would still have "some" access to about $63 million generated by other taxes if the bill gets passed.

The city hosts country music group Rascal Flatts Thursday.
