I wish to commend the Governor on his selection of an operator for Aqueduct; the development is of major importance to the thoroughbred industry in New York and to the State as a whole, especially during our current economic and budget crises.  The project will provide a significant economic engine for the future, and it will supply many much-needed jobs and stimulate our economy.
