Today, led by Senate Majority Conference Leader John L. Sampson, Senate Racing and Wagering Chair, Eric Adams, and Senator Joseph Addabbo, Jr., the Senate Majority Conference announced its acceptance of the Division of the Lottery’s selection of Genting New York to operate the Video Lottery Terminals (VLTs) at Aqueduct Racetrack.
“Nothing is more important than creating jobs. The acceptance of Genting puts New York on the fast track to rebuild our local and state economy through sound economic development and immediate and long-term job creation,” said Senate Majority Conference Leader John L. Sampson.
“Getting New Yorkers working again is our top priority. We are eager to move forward with this vital economic development project and urge the Governor and Assembly to join us in the acceptance of Genting by the end of this week so we can begin to create jobs and grow the industries that will help New York retain its standing as the Empire State," said Senate Racing and Wagering Chair Eric Adams.
“Throughout its application, Genting demonstrated the financial resources to bring real economic stability and good paying jobs to the local community. Genting submitted a robust job creation plan, including a focused effort to engage local community involvement and minority and women owned businesses. Their commitment to buying from local suppliers and donating 1 percent of their total annual income to the community proves Genting will be a good partner to the local community and the state,” said Senator Joseph Addabbo (D- Queens).
