Governor’s Program Bill–Casino Gaming
SEIU Local 200United supports the revised version of Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s program bill on casino gaming. We represent workers at the race tracks and gaming operations at Batavia Downs and at the Finger Lakes race track in Farmington.
SEIU Local 200United had expressed concerns about the previous version of the Governor’s bill–Program Bill #10–and we advocated for amendments to that bill to address the impact of the recent agreement between the state and the Seneca Nation.
As a result of discussions among all concerned parties, improvements have been made to the bill and our concerns have been addressed through the language contained in S5883/A8101. Therefore, we no longer have any objections and we support adoption of this bill. The changes made will help preserve jobs and bring revenues to local communities in Western New York.
