The push to enact tax breaks for Atlantic City casinos that are suffering financial issues now has a key supporter.
Bob McDevitt, the influential president of Local 54 of the Unite Here union, the main casino workers’ union, endorsed a bill being considered by state lawmakers.
McDevitt said on Monday that the bill is necessary to prevent thousands of casino workers from losing their jobs.
Last week, outgoing state Senate President Steve Sweeney said casino officials have told him that four of the city’s nine casinos are in danger of going out of business if the tax relief bill does not pass.
The Associated Press wire services contributed to this report.
