Should New York state expand gambling to boost the economy?
A new poll found that a majority of New York voters support creating casinos away from Indian Reservations as a way to boost the state's economy. Governor Andrew Cuomo first raised the idea, and legislative leaders are now considering a constitutional amendment to allow non-Indian casinos in New York, a move that would require voter approval. The Quinnipiac University poll found that sixty-four percent of voters said casinos would be good for the economy. What do you think? Should New York expand casino gambling?
