The New York State Gaming Commission is holding hearings on the issue of gambling addiction. It’s part of a process that will allow the building of up to seven new casino gambling resorts in New York over the next several years.

The first TV ad in support of the ballot amendment to build new casinos in New York has been released. Critics claim the ad is disingenuous. 

A New York State Supreme Court judge is expected to decide next week whether the State Board of Elections should change the wording of a casino gambling amendment. Critics say the wording is unfairly supportive of gambling.
