State Sen. Joseph P. Addabbo Jr. remained consistent [Wednesday], talking to NY Sports Day about his plans to have lawmakers discuss New York online casino and poker legalization in 2023. It’s what he’s been saying since April, when iGaming bills failed to move out of the New York State Legislature.
Legalizing iGaming is a priority, Addabbo said just a day after winning reelection.
