Senecas Offer Casino Compromise


The Seneca Nation says it’s willing to compromise with New York State in a dispute over casino revenues.

On Wednesday, Governor David Paterson said the state would shut down the nation’s three casinos unless the tribe paid $200 million in slot revenues. The Senecas have been withholding the payments because they say the state went against the gaming compact by allowing slot machines at racetracks.

Under the compromise, the nation would make payments to local municipalities that receive a portion of the money the Senecas send to the state.

The state hasn’t responded yet.
