It is anticipated that Governor Andrew Cuomo's proposed amendment that would give the go-ahead for new casinos to open in areas outside those where Native American gaming facilities operate in New York, could spur $1 billion dollars in economic development. David Blankenhorn with national conservative think tank the Institute for American Values says that particular number comes from a lobby group, the New York Gaming Association, not independent studies, and he predicts that the opposite will occur.
