NY Casino Decision Expected December 17
A decision on where up to four casinos will be located in upstate New York is expected to be announced December 17, the date a board reviewing casino applications is expected to meet for the final time.
New York State Gaming Commission Executive Director Robert Williams announced plans for the meeting Monday during a meeting of the commission.
16 applications have been filed and up to four casino licenses are set to be awarded for three different upstate regions: the Albany-Saratoga area, the Southern Tier-Finger Lakes region and the Catskills and mid-Hudson Valley.
The long-awaited decision will be made following months of public hearings and presentations on the proposals.
