Abstract: The public hearings sponsored by the State Commission of Investigation focused particularly on the infiltration of organized crime figures into legitimate enterprises, some of which are beyond the scope of the Casino Control Act. The hearings yielded evidence that organized crime figures do have involvement in particular cigarette vending businesses and alcoholic beverage sales in Atlantic City. The Commission's recommendations are based on its conclusion that both the ability to disperse alcoholic beverages and to distribute and stamp cigarettes are privileges granted by the State, and the State can therefore set licensure requirements that may exclude certain persons and businesses from engaging in cigarette and alcoholic beverage sales in the State. The Commission recommends that the persons requiring licensure to engage in cigarette vending and alcoholic beverage sales in the State be expanded to include all persons having a direct or indirect financial interest in such businesses or employees receiving in excess of $20,000 per year from the business. It is further recommended that conditions for disqualification from licensure should be modified to exclude all persons convicted of specified types of crimes or who are known to be associated with criminal enterprises. Forms currently used in licensure are appended.
