Vegas-style casinos coming to New York

WHO needs Las Vegas? Voters have overwhelmingly approved a bill to allow up to seven Vegas-style casinos in New York.

Supporters of the bill claim the new casinos will help revitalise struggling upstate regions and reclaim gambling dollars being lost to other states.

New York Governor Mario Cuomo said: “Today’s vote will further pave the way for the creation of new jobs, construction, and increased tourism in communities across the state.”

However, opponents have accused the administration of over-selling the benefits of casinos and complained the gambling parlors would drain money from poor and working-class New Yorkers.

“I think it is a bad public policy,” said David Blankenthorn, of the Institute for American Values.
