NY Gov. Andrew Cuomo To Rally For Online Sports Betting In New York

January 7, 2021

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo has expressed his intention to commit to online sports betting in New York.

According to Denis Slattery of the New York Daily News, Cuomo will reportedly be centering this topic among his policy proposals in the upcoming State of the State address that will be given later in January.

“New York has the potential to be the largest sports wagering market in the United States, and by legalizing online sports betting we aim to keep millions of dollars in tax revenue here at home, which will only strengthen our ability to rebuild from the COVID-19 crisis,” the New York governor said in a statement.
