Agreement ups casinos to four

ALBANY - Another agreement reached late Tuesday night dealing with casinos.

The bill expected to pass the legislature would allow for as many as four casinos upstate in three different regions.

Those regions include the Southern Tier, Capital Region, and the Catskills.

The original bill called for three casinos, this bill expands it to four. Governor Cuomo says it is still all about generating revenue upstate.

If approved by the legislature casinos would still need to be approved by taxpayers in a November referendum vote.
