ALBANY, NY (AP) - Bet on complications in picking spots for new casinos in New York.
It has become clear since Gov. Andrew Cuomo proposed three upstate casinos in yet-to-be identified locations that there is a patchwork of conflicting interests when it comes to gambling in New York.
State lawmakers are pushing back at Cuomo's proposal to let a commission dominated by his appointees take charge of siting. Also, there are rumblings from potential competitors and questions from local officials.
New York already has five Indian casinos and nine tracks that offer video slots but no table games.
The Legislature is expected to consider passage this year of an amendment to the state constitution that would allow up to seven casinos beyond Indian land. If approved, voters could make a final decision in November.
