Billionaire casino magnate Sheldon Adelson says he's interested in building a casino in the northern New Jersey Meadowlands if the state allows the expansion of gambling beyond Atlantic City.

   Speaking Wednesday at a casino industry forum in Las Vegas, the chairman of the Las Vegas Sands Corporation called the East Rutherford site "a very attractive place" for a casino. The area is home to the Meadowlands sports complex where the NFL's Jets and Giants play, as well as the Meadowlands race track, just outside New York City.

   Contenders include local investors and international gambling companies. The applications are detailed and long, with multiple copies required.
