EAST RUTHERFORD - Gov. Chris Christie's (R-N.J.) Advisory Commission on gaming, sports and entertainment, otherwise known as the Hanson Commission, delivered its recommendations this evening.

The commission says it's time to cut its losses and put an end to live racing at the Meadowlands and consolidate it with Monmouth Park Track.

The board says that both racetracks operate at a loss and that the Meadowlands is expected to run $11 million in the red this year.
