This morning I stood with my colleagues in the state Legislature, Assembly Minority Leader Pro Tem Tony Jordan and Assemblyman Jim Tedisco, as we unveiled -- and advocated for -- new legislation, the “Casino Gaming Transparency Act,” at a press conference in Saratoga Springs. The Act would help shed light on the Governor’s casino siting process and add important protections and assurances to the communities that currently host horse racing and VLT gaming.

If the answer to either question was “yes,” then State Senator Kathleen A. Marchione wants to hear from you by Monday, March 25!
