Atlantic City: Casino workers urge Gov. Murphy to support bills banning smoking on casino floor News 12 · January 26, 2022 at 2:52 pm A group of casino workers is calling on Gov. Phil Murphy to support bills that would ban smoking inside of Atlantic City’s casinos. “You wouldn’t understand the feeling you get when being on a game and someone walks up and you see them have a cigarette in their hand and you’re just begging, ‘Please don’t sit at my game,’” says Pete Naccarelli, co-founder of Casino Employees Against Smoking Effects (CEASE). Naccarelli is also a game dealer. He and his supporters say that enough is enough when it comes to smoking in their place of work. They say that 2022 needs to be the year that smoking is banned on the casino floor. A bill to ban the practice was introduced in the state Senate earlier this month.
