The state will ask the court to reconsider a judge's Feb. 25 decision that a law to restructure casino payments-in-lieu-of-taxes is in violation of a 2018 consent order. The state's representatives told the county last week the state would file a motion for reconsideration. Atlantic County Executive Dennis Levinson called the move a tactic to delay the process. The amended PILOT law passed quickly in December and was signed by Gov. Phil Murphy days before Christmas. It lowered casinos’ payments from what they would have been had the original PilOT Law continued.
