“To be as frank as I can, there’s not enough data out there for people to really understand the pros and cons and how this will affect particularly Atlanta,” said A.J. Robinson, head of CAP and ADID. “We’re business folks. We’d like to look and analyze and see what this is really all about. There’s a lot of data out there, but it hasn’t been presented to us or really anyone in a way to make an intelligent decision.”
Though Robinson’s groups are focused on downtown Atlanta, he said the study will examine the impact of casinos statewide.
