      Section: 5:12-87: Investigation of applicants for casino licenses; report, recommendation.

87. a. Upon the filing of an application for a casino license and such supplemental information as the commission or division may require, and upon the filing of such information as may be required by section 88 of P.L.1977, c.110 (C.5:12-88), the division shall conduct an investigation into the qualification of the applicant, and submit a report and recommendation to the commission.

b. Upon the submission of a report and recommendation by the division, the commission shall conduct a hearing thereon concerning the qualification of the applicant. After such hearing, the commission may either deny the application or grant a casino license to an applicant whom it determines to be qualified to hold such license, which final action shall be taken within 90 days after completion of the hearing.

c. The commission shall have the authority to deny any application pursuant to the provisions of this act. When an application is denied, the commission shall prepare and file an order stating the general reasons therefor, and if requested by the applicant, shall further prepare and file a statement of the reasons for the denial, including the specific findings of facts.

d. (Deleted by amendment, P.L.2011, c.19)

e. When an application is granted, and upon tender of all required license fees and taxes, and such bonds as the commission may require for the faithful performance of all requirements imposed by law or regulations, the commission shall issue a casino license.

f. The commission shall fix the amount of the bond or bonds to be required under this section in such amounts as it may deem appropriate, by rules of uniform application. The bonds so furnished may be applied by the commission to the payment of any unpaid liability of the licensee under this act. The bond shall be furnished in cash or negotiable securities, by a surety bond guaranteed by a satisfactory guarantor, or by an irrevocable letter of credit issued by a banking institution of this State acceptable to the commission. If furnished in cash or negotiable securities, the principal shall be placed without restriction at the disposal of the commission, but any income shall inure to the benefit of the licensee.
