ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - In New York state government news, Gov. Andrew Cuomo is making his fifth visit to Puerto Rico following last year's devastating hurricanes.

The Democrat will travel there Monday, joined by a group of state university students, labor leaders and elected officials who will participate in rebuilding projects.

Cuomo has blasted the federal response to hurricanes Irma and Maria, calling it a "national disgrace."

In other news, two upstate casinos are partnering with online fantasy sports operators to prepare for legalized sports betting.

The two casinos - Del Lago and Tioga Downs - will have to wait for new regulations before they can offer in-house betting. Supporters also want state permission to offer wagers online and on mobile devices.
