New York voters in November passed a state constitutional amendment to allow Las Vegas-style casinos. The five-member siting board is scheduled to request applications for four casino licenses in upstate New York in March.

Casino sites and operators are scheduled to be announced in the early fall.

Board members are not paid, but receive expenses.
