KENNEDY -- read twice and ordered printed, and when printed to be committed to the Committee on Rules AN ACT to amend the executive law, in relation to amendments to a tribal-state compact with the Seneca Nation of Indians THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM- BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS: Section 1. Legislative intent. The state legislature finds that the state continues to have a significant interest in ensuring that any tribal-state compact is consistent with, to the fullest extent possible, certain state laws, including, but not limited to, the labor law, the workers' compensation law, and the human rights law. These laws provide for the granting of benefits, rights and privileges which improve the economic quality of life and personal safety of persons who will be employed within a gaming facility either by the Nation or by any person, corporation, firm or entity engaged by the Nation, to operate, adminis- ter or manage the gaming facility. Moreover, the legislature finds that gaming should be conducted in a manner that adequately protects the environment and the public health and safety, which is a stated require- ment for the conduct of class III gaming activities pursuant to the Indian Gaming Regulatory Act. § 2. Subdivision (a) of section 12 of the executive law, as amended by section 9 of part O of chapter 56 of the laws of 2010, is amended to read as follows: (a) (I) Notwithstanding any other law, the state, through the gover- nor, may execute a tribal-state compact with the Seneca Nation of Indi- ans pursuant to the Indian Gaming Regulatory Act of 1988 (P.L. 100-497; 25 U.S.C. §§ 2701-2721 and 18 U.S.C. §§ 1166-1168) consistent with a memorandum of understanding between the governor and the president of the Seneca Nation of Indians executed on June twentieth, two thousand one and filed with the department of state on June twenty-first, two thousand one. Such tribal-state compact shall be deemed ratified by the EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets [ ] is old law to be omitted. LBD11773-01-3
