The last several days has brought some good news for the supporters of expanding casino gambling through a Constitutional amendment, due before voters next month.

On Wednesday, a state judge this week dismissed a lawsuit filed by a Brooklyn-based attorney that challenged the process by which the amendment’s language was developed.

The attorney, Eric Snyder, pointed to what gambling opponents consider to be overly rosy projections should commercial casinos be built in New York: more jobs, lower property taxes and extra cash for schools.

But the language will stand and go before voters and Snyder on Thursday indicated he won’t file a last-minute appeal to Judge Richard Platkin’s ruling.

At the same time, the ballot referendum committee supporting the amendment is holding events around the state to drum up local support for the amendment.

The group New York Jobs Now previously held a news conference in Albany and then down on Long Island featuring the Republican and Democratic rivals for Nassau county executive, Ed Mangano and Tom Suozzi.

Today, New York Jobs Now headed to Rochester, with Assemblyman Joe Morelle leading a news conference on the benefits of casino expansion. Morelle is a key legislative ally for Gov. Andrew Cuomo, a backer of the casino push.

Like Long Island, Rochester is not due to receive a casino in the first phase of licensing.

Enabling legislation and revenue-sharing agreements forged with American Indian tribes that run casinos in upstate New York have restricted development to the Southern Tier, the Catskills and the Albany area.

How well this bodes for finding votes in western New York remains to be seen. Proponents of casinos argue the state will benefit as a whole from the increased education aid the casinos are expected to produce.

But there is the concern, first raised in the beginning of the year, that getting out the vote for casinos may be difficult, especially given the turnout is expected to be concentrated in New York City this year due to the mayoral election.

Nevertheless, an embryonic advertising campaign is beginning in the form of Nevele through billboards and a web presence pushing for the amendment.
