Cuomo to deliver casino funds to 3 NY cities

NIAGARA FALLS -- Gov. Andrew Cuomo will visit the three western New York cities with casinos to deliver gambling revenue funds that were withheld by the Seneca Nation of Indians during a four-year dispute with the state.
Cuomo's first stop Wednesday morning will be the Seneca Niagara casino in the city of Niagara Falls. Afterward he'll head to Buffalo, followed by a trip farther south to Salamanca, near the Pennsylvania border.

Seneca Nation President Barry Snyder Sr. will join Cuomo at each stop as the governor hands over the nearly $140 million the tribe owes the three cities. Niagara Falls will receive the biggest check: $89 million.
Cuomo and Snyder announced last month that the Senecas would resume sharing the tribe's casino revenues with the state. The tribe suspended the payments in 2009.
