Video slot machines are one step closer to coming to the Aqueduct race track in Queens.
Governor David Paterson and the Assembly chose a Buffalo-based company to install the machines at the race track.
Delaware North Companies Gaming and Entertainment promised to give the State $370 million upfront.
However, Republican Senate Majority Leader Dean Skelos said he will not approve the deal unless it includes more jobs for the people who live in the area of the Queens race track.
The governor said the proposal included such a provision and accused Skelos of stalling.
Skelos said Delaware North offers the most money upfront but it does not offer the best long term plan for the track.
