TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - Gov. Chris Christie says he will sign a bill laying out new tax incentives for businesses only if non-gambling projects in Atlantic City are eligible for more aid.

Christie issued a conditional veto on Thursday of additions and changes to the New Jersey Economic Opportunity Act, which he signed a year ago.

The main change is that he wants the best incentives available also to job-creating, non-gambling projects in Atlantic City, where three casinos have closed this year so far and a fourth one is scheduled to be shut down next week.

He also says he will not allow some sections that he says were put in to benefit lawmakers.

His version of the bill now goes back to state lawmakers.
