Bidding is getting underway for four privately owned casinos in upstate New York.

The state Gaming Commission's Facility Location Board is putting out requests for applications Monday for casinos in the Albany area, the Catskills and the Southern Tier. The application process ends on June 30.

The Gaming Commission has appointed former city comptroller William Thompson, Hofstra President Stuart Rabinowitz and veteran gubernatorial adviser Paul Francis to the panel that will choose operators and locations for new casinos.

The board still has to set a licensing fee and determine how to measure local support for casino projects.

New York voters in November passed a state constitutional amendment to allow Las Vegas-style casinos beyond Indian land.
