NEW YORK WILL GUARANTEE GROWTH IN LOTTERY REVENUE

Gov. Cuomo Wednesday said New York City officials have agreed to guarantee continued 5 percent growth in instant lottery game revenues as the price for starting their own game. The city would compensate the state for any shortfall.

The city's instant lottery game, designed to raise $50 million annually, is part of the city's plan to pay for a $1.8 billion "Safe Streets, Safe City" program meant to put several thousand new police officers on the streets.
