The Tioga Chamber of Commerce recently brought together local leaders for a rally in support of expanded casino gaming. If the amendment passes and Tioga Downs is chosen to host the Southern Tier casino, Tioga County and the Town of Nichols would receive the greatest property tax benefit. Stella Reschke, Tioga's Director of Tourism, says placing a casino in a rural area has a large economic impact.

"That suggests that an urban casino will have a much different impact than a rural casino. Also, the smaller the region, the greater chance that the cost of gambling, especially those of problem gamblers, will occur outside of the region," said tourism director Stella Reschke.

The Greater Binghamton Chamber has also come out in support of Proposition 1.
