Governor Cuomo is due to roll out his proposal for the state budget this week, a plan to legalize online sports gambling is now before the State Senate's Finance Committee.

Last week, it passed seven to zero in the Senate racing, gaming and wagering committee.

A similar bill was passed by the Senate last year, but the assembly did not take it up for a vote.
