Addabbo comments on inclusion of downstate casino licenses in NYS Excutive Budget

Senator Joseph P. Addabbo, Jr.

“Today’s Executive Budget released by Governor Kathy Hochul presents a fiscal path forward for New York State during these difficult times. I believe the inclusion of expediting the three full casino licenses for our downstate region has the potential to bring in $1.5 billion in revenue for the state, additional educational funding and improvements to problem gambling programs. I look forward to continuing to work with the Hochul administration and the Gaming Commission to ensure that gaming in the state expands and advances in a credible, reasonable manner.”
