Senator Addabbo’s Statement on Recent Resorts World Numbers
Queens, NY, August 7, 2012 -- Once again, the educations of our children in our community and across this state are benefited by the amount of activity at the Resorts World casino. In less than a year, Resorts World has provided to the education portion of our state budget over $200 million. It has also been a place of employment for over 1,500 individuals and has been a source of revenue to New York State of over $300 million. Since dealing with Resorts World from its beginning, I never would have thought that its rise to success would have reached these numbers so quickly.
