ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - New York State lawmakers have scheduled a public hearing on allowing sports wagers on mobile devices.

The Senate Standing Committee on Racing, Gaming and Wagering will hear testimony Wednesday in Albany.

New Jersey and six other states have recently legalized sports betting. New York is likely to join them this summer, but under the current plans it will only be allowed at four non-Native American-owned upstate casinos.

Meanwhile, Sen. Rob Ortt, of North Tonawanda made a statement about democrats saying they're seeking to drive conservatives out of the state.
