Assemblyman Santabarbara Statement on Mobile Sports Betting

“As a member of the Assembly Racing and Wagering Committee, I've been a long-time supporter of legalizing mobile sports betting and I’m glad to see it become a reality today here at Rivers Casino in Schenectady. Moving forward to open up this new market is not only great news for sports enthusiasts, but will also provide substantial benefits for all New Yorkers – bettors and non-bettors alike. Mobile sports betting is expected to generate millions for our state and I look forward to seeing this additional revenue and ensuring it’s invested in our community.”
