Gov. Chris Christie will come to Atlantic City on Tuesday to address landmark legislation that aims to remake the resort's tourism and casino industries, an administration source confirmed Saturday.

"The governor will be in Atlantic City on Tuesday for an announcement on the Atlantic City-related legislation," said a Christie administration source familiar with the plan.

On Jan. 10, the state Senate and Assembly passed two bills, one putting the city's tourism areas under state agency control, and the other fundamentally changing the way casinos are regulated.

One bill, S-11, creates a state-controlled Tourism District that will beĀ under the purview of the Casino Reinvestment Development Authority.

The other, S-12, gives regulatory power over casinos to the Division of Gaming Enforcement, part of the Attorney General's Office, and removes those powers from the Casino Control Commission.
