Cuomo NYS State of the State Address 2013

Thought this was a interesting point of interest for us all as a community.
Governor Cuomo Outlines Bold Agenda for 2013: Builds on Progress of Past Two Years by Growing the Economy, Investing in Education, Maintaining Legacy as Progressive Capital of the Nation, and Rising to Meet Challenges in the Wake of Hurricane Sandy |

Market NY to Focus on Upstate Economic Development: The Governor today announced Market NY, a new multi-faceted marketing plan to bolster Upstate growth.

Taste-NY: The Taste-NY initiative will coordinate around promoting New York products, including creating duty-free "Taste-NY" stores across the state to promote New York grown and produced products.

$5 Million Advertising Competition: A $5 million advertising competition for the best regional marketing plans will be launched, incentivizing counties to work together to forge regional synergies.

The Adirondack Challenge: Noting that New York has some of the best whitewater rafting in the nation, the Governor proposed a national whitewater rafting competition to be held in the North Country.

Destination Resorts/Casino Gaming: To increase upstate tourism, the Governor proposed a casino gaming plan that would locate up to three casinos in Upstate New York. Under the proposal, casino gaming revenue will be split 90% for education and 10% for local property tax relief.
