Genting New York, a unit of Malaysia’s Genting Group, spent $1.22 million in lobbying efforts in New York in 2020, making it the sixth-biggest spender in the state.

The lobbying figures were released in the New York State Joint Commission on Public Ethics’ annual report.

The operator, which in June opened its $4.3 billion Resorts World Las Vegas, has been pushing hard to expand in the U.S. and may consider a separate stock market listing there for its assets.

It owns Empire Resorts, which runs Resorts World Catskills and Resorts World New York City.
