Statement from the New York Facility Location Board

Friday, June 20, 2014 - Updated: 11:54 PM

New York Gaming Facility Location Board Spokesman Lee Park has issued the following statement:

"The requirements spelled out in the Request for Applications (RFA) establish a level playing field for all potential applicants, including the proposed project in Amsterdam. It is simply not feasible or fair to alter any provision of the RFA or make concessions at the request of a bidder. To do so would create an unfair bidding process for every other potential bidder and invalidate the RFA. While we cannot honor any applicant's request to make concessions or alterations to the RFA, we do encourage all applicants to move forward with their bids and put their best plans forward.

The Gaming Facility Location Board carefully and thoroughly formed the RFA's components, including the minimum license fee and the application deadline, with the assistance of the board's Gaming Advisory Services Consultant. The RFA clearly follows the intent of the Upstate New York Gaming Economic Development Act - to create an open and competitive process to determine the best possible applicants to provide jobs and revenue to the locality, region and state."
