New York Lawmakers Agree to Legalize Seven Casinos

“We are finally confronting the reality that while New York is already in the gaming business, we need a real plan to regulate and capitalize on the industry,” New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said.

“This is a process that will ultimately put thousands of New Yorkers to work, drive our economy, and help keep billions of dollars spent by New Yorkers on gaming in the state.”

This was an issue that was debated by state lawmakers for over a decade.

Details, such as the locations of the new casinos, will be determined in 2013.
