NY Gov. Cuomo sets NY, his own political future, on course for 2nd year in State of State
By The Associated Press

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) ' New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo wants to build the world's largest convention center hotel at a New York City racetrack as part of his push to expand gambling in a bid for more state tax revenue and jobs.

During his second State of the State address, the first-term Democrat is proposing a nearly 4 million-square foot convention center with 3,000 hotel rooms located at the Aqueduct Racetrack.

He's also calling for a rebuilding project called "NY Works" to replace 100 bridges, including the Tappan Zee Bridge, and repair 2,000 miles of roads.

Cuomo, who is already mentioned as a potential 2016 presidential candidate, is also seeking voluntary public financing of political campaigns and a cut in the amount of top donations.
