    Chapter 12:

      Section: 5:12-179: Determination of investment or donation eligibility prior to adoption of rules and regulations; conditions

           a. Notwithstanding any other law or any other section of this 1984 amendatory and supplementary act to the contrary, a casino licensee may seek a determination of eligibility from the Casino Reinvestment Development Authority for an equity investment commenced or a donation made prior to the adoption by the Casino Reinvestment Development Authority of its rules and regulations pursuant to subsection h. of section 3 of P.L.1984, c. 218 (C. 5:12-144.1) if:

(1) The application concerns an equity investment in, or donation of money or realty in support of, the rehabilitation, development or construction of housing facilities in the Inlet section of the city of Atlantic City for persons or families of low through middle income as defined and required by subsection f. of section 3 of P.L.1984, c. 218 (C. 5:12-144.1);

(2) The Casino Reinvestment Development Authority finds that the investment or donation is consistent with the requirements of section 25 of P.L.1984, c. 218 (C. 5:12-173) and in particular, that the housing facilities which are the recipients of the investment or donation are compatible with the proposal for the development of a balanced residential community in the Inlet section of the city of Atlantic City approved and adopted by the Casino Control Commission; and

(3) The licensee applies to the Casino Reinvestment Development Authority for a determination of eligibility for the investment or donation within 90 days of the adoption by the Casino Reinvestment Development Authority of its rules and regulations pursuant to subsection h. of section 3 of P.L.1984, c. 218 (C. 5:12-144.1), and subsequently obtains a determination of eligibility for the investment or donation in accordance with the rules and regulations of the Casino Reinvestment Development Authority.

b. Notwithstanding any other law or section of this 1984 amendatory and supplementary act to the contrary, a casino licensee may seek a determination of eligibility from the Casino Reinvestment Development Authority for an investment in, guarantee of, or a contractual commitment for an investment in or guarantee of infrastructure requirements, such as public roads, streets, intersections and sewer and water facilities, made prior to the adoption by the Casino Reinvestment Development Authority of its rules and regulations pursuant to subsection h. of section 3 of P.L.1984, c. 218 (C. 5:12-144.1) which are dedicated to the public use and benefit society as a whole. To the extent any such investment in or guarantee of infrastructure requirements exceeds the demand for such requirements created by an approved casino-hotel or related facility and thus does not finance infrastructure improvements required to be made by a casino licensee pursuant to subsection e. of section 84 of P.L.1977, c. 110 (C. 5:12-84), the excess investment or guarantee may, in the sole discretion of the Casino Reinvestment Development Authority, be considered an eligible investment or project if the authority finds that the investment or guarantee serves the most pressing social and economic needs of the residents of the city of Atlantic City and otherwise satisfies the requirements of section 25 of this 1984 amendatory and supplementary act.

c. If a casino licensee obtains a determination of eligibility for an investment or donation pursuant to subsection a. or b. of this section, the investment or donation shall first be used to satisfy the licensee's most recently incurred investment obligation under subsection b. of section 144 of P.L.1977, c. 110 (C. 5:12-144). If the licensee has no outstanding investment obligations under subsection b. of section 144 of P.L.1977, c. 110 (C. 5:12-144) at the time the determination of eligibility is obtained, the licensee shall be entitled to an investment tax credit against the tax imposed by subsection a. of section 3 of P.L.1984, c. 218 (C. 5:12-144.1) in an amount equal to twice the amount of the eligible equity investment or donation made by the licensee.

L.1984, c. 218, s. 31, eff. Dec. 19, 1984.
