The New York Post reported on Tuesday that New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo says his administration is actively investigating whether to bring commercial, non-Indian casinos and related gambling to New York.
Allowing more commercial casinos in New York would likely require legislation. A constitutional amendment may or may not be necessary. Cuomo said it was time for the state to “come to grips” with commercial casinos and gaming because there’s already extensive and lucrative gambling in the state and in neighboring states.
