Gov. Andrew Cuomo's budget proposal says new casinos could be operating in upstate New York by next Jan. 15.

New York voters in November passed a state constitutional amendment to allow Las Vegas-style casinos beyond Indian land. State officials can now award up to four casino licenses upstate.

Cuomo intends to appoint a siting board this month and casino applications will be accepted in March. Cuomo has said construction can begin after the early fall announcements.

Cuomo is releasing his plans for the 2014-15 budget on Tuesday.
