NEW YORK (Reuters) – The New York State Lottery and New York State Police are expected to begin joint training shortly after an earlier announcement by the Virginia State Gambling Commission that similar decisions will be made.
The Associated Press reported that the Virginia Games Commission originally planned for July 1, 2019, but has now changed that to allow a delay in the beginning of the new year until November at the earliest.
The New York State Lottery and New York State Police are expected to begin joint training soon after the Virginia State Gambling Commission announced earlier that such a decision would be made.
According to reports in Virginia, the long-running campaign to legalize casinos took a big step forward on Sunday after state lawmakers passed a measure that would allow gambling in five different cities. According to a Sunday report by local broadcaster WSET-TV, yesterday Virginia delegates approved the 60-35 casino proposal, just 24 hours after the Virginia Senate approved the same poll with a margin of 27 to 12.
The document states that this legislation was introduced by Virginia Sen. Lily Louise Lucas in November and now requires the signing of Virginia Gov. Nathan Dial to become law. Coincidence would allow the cities of Danville, Richmond, Bristol, Portsmouth and Norfolk to hold local referendums as early as November to ask residents if they want their communities to host a casino.
