Cuomo reportedly eyes Buffalo for casino

Cuomo reportedly eyes Buffalo for casino

NIAGARA FALLS — Gov. Andrew Cuomo is reported to be planning to propose a new casino in Niagara Fall

NIAGARA FALLS — Gov. Andrew Cuomo is reported to be planning to propose a new casino in Niagara Falls, where the state has a long-standing dispute with the Seneca Nation over revenue sharing.

The Buffalo News reported that Cuomo’s move could be a way of jump-starting stalled talks over more than $500 million in gambling revenue payments the tribe has withheld in a contract dispute with the state. Or it could be an attempt to bring competition to the tribe’s western New York gambling empire.

The News cites a Cuomo administration source who insisted on anonymity. The administration didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment Sunday.

Cuomo has said he wanted to bring non-Indian casinos to upstate as a revenue source but he hasn’t publicly identified specific sites.
