Lockport, NY – I am pleased that a temporary extension of the current Gaming Compact between the Seneca Nation and New York State has been reached.  However, the Governor must continue to work towards a long-term agreement for the benefit of Niagara Falls and Western New York. Any future agreement must prioritize the host communities and benefit not only New York State but the people of the Seneca Nation as well.
