Plans for a new Niagara Falls area casino are being worked on. A proposed casino for the area has the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo. This after negotiations with the Seneca Nation have slowed.
The Seneca Nation believes that the state of New York is in violation of the gaming compact after the state allowed for racetracks to operate casino gaming. The state believes the Seneca's owe over $500 million in back payments from revenue sharing.
The original gaming compact was agreed upon in 2002. In order for a new casino can be approved in the Niagara Falls area, the gaming commission will have to decided if the gaming compact was breached.
The purposed plan to develop casinos in upstate has previously been announced by the governor. It has been presented as a way to earn money. However, the exact locations of the casinos have not been announced.
In order for the upstate casinos to be built, an amendment to the state state's constitution must be approved. In addition, voters must also agree on the plan.
