People can now examine the 17 proposals to build casinos around upstate New York with a click of a mouse.
State gambling regulators said Friday that they have posted each of the applications on their agency website. The applications run for thousands of pages, though certain financial details aren't subject to the open records law have been redacted.
The developers behind the applications are hoping to win one of up to four casino licenses set to be awarded for three different regions. The licenses will be divided among the Albany-Saratoga area, the Southern Tier-Finger Lakes region and the Catskills and mid-Hudson Valley.
A state board is now reviewing the applications and is expected to make a decision this fall.
