Casino contenders to gather for mandatory summit

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) Developers looking to build a casino in upstate New York are gathering in Albany for a meeting with state regulators.

Wednesday's conference is mandatory for anyone applying to build one of the four casinos authorized for the Catskills, the Albany-Saratoga area or the Southern Tier-Finger Lakes region.

The meeting is intended to answer questions from potential casino developers. It will be open to the public.

Last week developers submitted casino license application fees of $1 million each for 22 different projects. Selections will be made this fall.

The Catskills and mid-Hudson Valley have attracted the most interest, with at least 10 development groups proposing casinos.
