NEW JOBS. MONEY FOR SCHOOLS. LOWER PROPERTY TAXES.
New Yorkers currently spend more than $1.2 billion a year at destination casinos in neighboring states. Allowing casinos in New York will keep a lot of that money right here in New York where it belongs — helping to generate economic activity, fund our schools, and provide tax relief.
On the ballot this November, Proposal 1 will ask voters to approve the casino plan passed by Governor Andrew Cuomo and the State Legislature this spring.
Vote YES on Proposal 1
With the approval of Proposal 1, the Upstate New York Gaming and Economic Development Act would permit up to four new casinos in the Catskills, Capital region and the Southern Tier in upstate New York.
