ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — Another group hoping to build a casino in upstate New York has submitted its $1 million application fee to the state.
The owners of Broome County's Traditions Resort and Conference Center in the Southern Tier say they made the required payment on Monday.
Wednesday is the final day for groups interested in one of four upstate casino licenses to pay the application fee. Selections will be made in the fall.
A state constitutional amendment passed last year authorizes casinos in the Albany-Saratoga area, the Catskills and the Southern Tier.
With its proximity to New York City the Catskills may be the most competitive region. At least seven groups have expressed interest in building a casino there.
Empire Resorts says it paid the application fee for its Catskills proposal on Monday.
