Do You Want Online Gambling?
While New Jersey is on the path of legalizing online gambling, according to a recent poll, a majority of New York residents would vote against the proposed amended in the constitution that was proposed by NYC governor, Andrew Cuomo, if the amendment didn’t disclose the exact locations in which casino gambling would be permitted.
Seventy-three percent of the people who participated in the survey stated that they would refuse and vote against the bill if it did not specify the exact location of the casinos while twenty-once percent stated that they would approve of such amendment. As a part of the same survey, fifty-nine percent stated that they agree that Albany should not expand gambling prior to giving the communities a chance to vote while thirty=three percent stated that the great positive effects of such gambling operations would trump any local politics. They see that such gambling operations would bring a lot of revenue in taxes to the state while providing a lot of job opportunities to the residents.
So it is very clear that a great majority of New Yorkers would not approve of the amendment if it does not have the approval of the local communities while a minority of New Yorkers would vote yet without listening to what the local communities have to say. This could widely affect the referendum on the new gambling bill that is expected to take place sometime this year. This is because the number of New Yorkers who will vote no are overwhelming and the voters who live in the 5 boroughs are going to be overrepresented at these polls due to the high turnout expected in this mayoral election.
Before this step, before the gambling bill is presented to voters in the referendum, the legislature of the state has to approve first on the amendment to the state constitution that intends to allow gambling in New York. The administration of Andrew Cuomo did not agree to allow legislators or localities the ability to veto the locations of the casinos.
The local approval power is going to give the local communities the leverage that they need. They will need that leverage in order to negotiate with casinos in order to ensure a certain number of job opportunities being given to residents who live near the casino sites.
