Cuomo pushes to expand casinos in New York state
In another effort to boost tourism and the state’s economy, Governor Andrew Cuomo released Thursday a plan for resort gaming centers in upstate New York.
Only one casino, chosen through a bidding process, would operate in each of six designated regions, the state said.
Three regions already have casinos run by Indian nations, which the state said might qualify as the regional casino.
“Our state has a unique opportunity to revitalize the local economies of communities in Upstate New York and create thousands of new jobs where they are needed most,” the governor said.
