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 Seneca reservations.

"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.
