ALBANY – With legalized casino gaming, including in Sullivan County, about 2 ½ years away, the New York State Gaming Commission is going to conduct a series of five events around the state to discuss responsible gaming practices.
The sessions will begin in April with the first one held in Queens.
Others will be in the Hudson Valley and other gaming areas.
The commission’s Lee Park will be coordinating the events that he outlined for the commission at its Monday meeting.
“Each will start with a comprehensive town hall meeting for prevention and treatment providers to earn continuing education credits and to discuss where the gambling industry is heading in New York,” Park said. “The latter portion of the event will be an exhibition/trade show where local providers, gaming facilities and other interested parties can showcase and programs geared toward responsible gaming practices.”
Dates and locations of the meetings will be announced later.
