New Yorkers could see huge, resort casinos upstate and an influx of new employers lured by the promise of tax-free operations for a decade under several deals in the works in Albany.
Or not.
Such is the unpredictability of the late-session rush in the Capitol, where a series of closed-door negotiations with two to four leaders can change the state's future or spoil a six-month legislative session. The session is scheduled to end Thursday.
After Monday's series of private talks, Gov. Andrew Cuomo and legislative leaders revealed little.
An announcement of deals could come as early as Monday night or Tuesday.
But negotiations could drag on much of the week.
