Catskills Casinos Update

This is what I'm hoping we can have more of with this site. I just got this update from the people at http://www.dontgambleourfuture.org/ Although I've read several casino articles, I've never seen them mentioned in the media. Check it out. Apparently the concept of placing 5 new casinos in the Catskills might have some negative environmental impact? Who would've thunk it?

Their note:

Having been at the hearing, it was quite a treat. At the Senate hearings the legislators were very sweet to the developers. That was not the case at this hearing. Check out some great testimony here:
