Cuomo States Possibility of Non-Indian Casinos in WNY
It could spell the end of the Seneca Nation's exclusivity on gambling in Western New York. Governor Andrew Cuomo said on Monday that he won't rule out placing non-Indian casinos in our area if the years-long dispute over revenue-sharing payments is not resolved this year. There's over $400 million in held-up casino revenue due to Albany and "host" communities in Niagara Falls, Buffalo and Salamanca. Seneca Nation officials so far have declined to comment.
