The Meadowlands Regional Chamber's proposed redevelopment of the Meadowlands Sports Complex came from left field when it was announced one week ago. The idea of a casino, convention centre, conference centre, hotels and much more were put forth. The administration for New Jersey Governor Chris Christie has since released a statement regarding the proposal.

A report on has quoted a spokesman for Christie as saying on Thursday, February 3 that, “we (Christie's administration) will review the proposal, but [we] don’t have anything to offer by way of specific reaction at this point.”

Christie and his administration has made it clear over the past couple of months that bringing expanded gaming to the Meadowlands is not in the foreseeable plans, as it looks to reload Atlantic City as an east-coast gaming powerhouse once again.

“What we laid out today isn’t specifically about gaming,” Meadowlands Regional Chamber CEO Jim Kirkos was quoted as saying during last week's announcement.

“The heart and soul of what we laid out was really more about continuing what the state and the governor’s office has already been doing.”
