This bill would impose a daily $2 per room surcharge on hotel occupancies in certain cities. The bill would require that all the proceeds from these surcharges would have to be used to fund public safety services for such city. The surcharges would sunset in two years after the effective date. The surcharges under the bill would be imposed in municipalities that levy a retail sales tax pursuant to P.L.1947, c.71 (C.40:48-8.15 et seq.), which is only available to fourth class cities. Atlantic City is currently the only such city that levies this tax and that would be subject to the surcharge provisions of the bill. The surcharges imposed by the bill would be in addition to the daily fees levied on hotel occupancies pursuant to P.L.1991, c.376 (C.40:48-8.45 et seq.) and section 6 of P.L.2003, c.116 (C.5:12-145.8). The State would collect the surcharges and would remit the revenues therefrom to the city.
