Molinaro Statement on Supreme Court Sports Betting Decision
"Over the past 7 years, Andrew Cuomo has built the upstate economy on the empty promises of casino gambling, corrupt corporate giveaways and mixed martial arts, the results have been disastrous. The decision by the Supreme Court to strike down the prohibition against sports betting will undoubtedly have him peddling yet another mirage for hardworking upstate families.
There will be intense interest among gaming interests to access New York's lucrative market for sports betting. Given the administration's record of corruption, it is incumbent on state and federal lawmakers to ensure this is not just another Cuomo pay to play opportunity. It is important that any process is transparent and includes a competitive process. As part of that transparency, I am calling on Governor Cuomo to reject any gaming related campaign contributions during this process.
The only way to revive the upstate economy is to make New York more affordable by lowering the tax burden, eliminating the corruption tax and providing small businesses relief from Cuomo's onerous regulatory decrees. If elected, the days of relying on gimmicks, gaming and graft will end and we will replace it with sound and fair economic policies."
