AGA president and CEO Geoff Freeman issues statement on passage of New York casino referendum

6 November 2013

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- The following statement was issued by Geoff Freeman, American Gaming Association (AGA) president and CEO, on the passage of the New York casino referendum:

We applaud the vote that will allow the expansion of gaming venues in New York. The gaming industry represents an engine of economic growth and a driver of innovation - it creates high-quality jobs and new businesses, leads technological advancements, increases opportunities for local suppliers, supports tourism and raises property values. It also generates critical tax revenues for local, state and federal governments that are then reinvested in America's communities.

New Yorkers have lived with commercial casinos for nearly a decade and have experienced the positive ways the gaming industry contributes to their well-being. And they are not alone - since 2010, voters in Iowa, Maine, Maryland and Rhode Island have voted in favor of expanded gaming options in their states as well.

We look forward to working with New York casinos and their employees as they expand gaming offerings in the state.
