A proposed casino on the Hudson River across from Albany has received approval from local officials.
    
The Rensselaer Common Council voted Wednesday in favor of a resolution supporting a casino proposed from Flaum Management and the Chickasaw Nation's Global Gaming Solutions. The developers revealed earlier this week that they had shifted their focus to a casino site in the city of Rensselaer from a site off the Thruway in neighboring Albany, which was unsuitable for the large-scale resort.
    
There are 19 development groups interested in four casino licenses that will be granted this year in three regions: the Albany-Saratoga area, the Southern Tier-Finger Lakes region and the Catskills and mid-Hudson River Valley.
    
Applicants have until the end of the month to submit final proposals.
