For weeks now, New York state Sen. Joe Addabbo has lamented the difficulty of getting other state leaders interested in legalizing online casino games during the upcoming fiscal year.
“I can’t be the only one,” Addabbo told US Bets. “It can’t just be one legislator.”
Now, with the state budget deadline of April 1 looming — though, bear in mind, the deadline is frequently extended — Addabbo is running out of time to get others to line up behind Senate Bill 4856. The bill, which Addabbo introduced Feb. 15, would grant licenses to mobile sportsbook operators, casinos, tribes, and racinos to run mobile casino gaming including slots, virtual table games, and live dealer games.
