TRENTON - New Jersey’s lawmakers may be close to reaching a compromise on a plan to fix Atlantic City’s finances.
Assemblyman Ralph Caputo tells News 12 New Jersey that a meeting took place Thursday to work on the plan.
A possible deal could combine the two current plans that lawmakers have been fighting over.
A feud between Assembly Speaker Vincent Prieto and Gov. Chris Christie has delayed lawmakers from voting on a plan.
Gov. Christie and Senate President Steve Sweeney support a state takeover of Atlantic City, which would include some changes to the city’s workers union. That plan was already passed by the New Jersey Senate.
Under Prieto’s plan, Atlantic City would have two years of protection before the state could take over and union contracts would be protected.
No details about the possible compromise have been released.
