ALBANY - Gov. David Paterson said yesterday that he's "not interested" in
negotiating an agreement with the Seneca Indian Nation to build a Catskills
casino until the tribe agrees to pay taxes on cigarettes and gasoline sold on
"I think right now before we resolve that is the resolution of the lack of taxes
that we're receiving for a number of different items, not just gaming, but
obviously cigarette sales, gasoline," the governor told reporters.
The governor's comments followed a meeting earlier this week in Albany in which
the Senecas hoped to persuade him to accept an agreement for them to build a new
casino in the Catskills.
