Statement Regarding Legalizing Gaming in New York - 8/9/11

From: Mark Emery, director of media relations, Oneida Nation

“If the State wishes to expand gaming, it has two options for doing so. It can spend many years trying to pass new legislation through two successive terms of the legislature -- something which it never has been able to accomplish -- and present it for a state-wide referendum, something it never has attempted. Or, it can bring gaming to the State promptly and assuredly under already-existing laws by working closely with its in-state Indian nations to enjoy immediate revenue sharing which would benefit the entire State.”
