From the Daily News:
Gov. Paterson is giving legislative leaders a week to decide who should operate long-delayed video gambling at Aqueduct Racetrack - or he'll make the choice.
"What I am probably going to do in the next week or so is pick one myself and try to publicly persuade them to embrace this decision," Paterson said Friday before hosting a New Year's open house at the Governor's Mansion.
Paterson and the leaders of the Assembly and Senate must agree on an operator for the facility but have been deadlocked for months over which of the five remaining bidders should redevelop the Queens racetrack.
