Cuomo appears to hate racinos. He is a sly fox. Took all that money from NYGA for his campaign and now seems to want to put them out of business by giving casino licenses to big out of state interests. Not sure if Empire is needed anymore....or if genting needs empire. Ifhe doesnt allow any in nYC in phase 1 and only in upsate, not sure genting really needs empire for any bidding purposes. could put monticello out of business and run away with the casino license on their own or in cooperation with EPR. getting fooooked once again?
look at gural's quote. he is right. What is cuomo's logic? Wasnt cuomo paying attention back in the 90's? All he is doing is setting up the whole thing for years of delay....by then he will be focuses on presidential campaign, and will die on the vine again. Plus, does he realize how much support lawmakers in assembly and senate get from all the racinos? Second passage may not even get through if he screws all the tracks.
Everyone here keeps forgetting, Genting does not need cuomo for Monticello. They can still build Class 3 Casino with Mohawks since Kemphorne was reversed. They want the Casino for themselves but will add the Native Americans if necessary.
