Assemblywoman DiAnne C. Gove of the 9th Legislative District has been appointed to serve on the Casino Revenue Fund Advisory Commission, which reviews programs for seniors and persons with disabilities.

The Casino Revenue Fund was established in 1977 under the law and constitutional amendment permitting casino gambling in Atlantic City. Revenue generated by casino gross receipts is deposited into the fund for programs that assist senior citizens and individuals with disabilities. The Casino Revenue Fund Advisory Commission was legislated in 1992 to provide recommendations to the state Legislature concerning use of the Casino Revenue Fund.

“Ensuring that revenue is being utilized in the most effective manner possible is an obligation we must fulfill for those seniors and persons with disabilities who depend on Casino Revenue-funded programs,” Gove stated. “Such critical programs include Transportation Assistance for Senior Citizens and Disabled Residents, Pharmaceutical Assistance to the Aged & Disabled and the Statewide Birth Defects Registry.

“Serving on this commission will dovetail with responsibilities as a member of the Assembly Human Services Committee,” she added. “Senior citizens compose a large segment of my constituency, and this appointment will allow me to more effectively represent the interests of our most vulnerable citizens along with my 9th District legislative colleagues, Sen. Chris Connors and Assemblyman Brian Rumpf.” —J.K.-H.
