A plan by Governor Andrew Cuomo to legalize full casino gambling in New York State could be a financial boon.  The New York Gaming Association has released a report suggesting such a move would generate over $3.3 in economic output.  The group also suggests that legalizing non-Indian casino gambling could create some 17,000 construction-related jobs and over 8,000 permanent jobs.  NYGA believes recurring annual revenue for the state in such a move would be north of $975 million.
