ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - A decision to appoint a new member to the board reviewing casino proposals in New York has been postponed.

The New York Gaming Commission was scheduled to appoint a fourth member to the Gaming Facility Location Board on Wednesday but said it needed more time.

The board is tasked with reviewing the plans of developers looking to win one of the up to four casino licenses available for upstate New York. The board is authorized to have up to five members. It currently has three.

Details of the casino proposals continue to emerge as the June 30 deadline for developers to submit plans nears.

The group behind a $425 million casino being proposed in the Finger Lakes announced Wednesday that the development would be called Lago Resort & Casino.
