Assemblyman John Ceretto joined Gov. Andrew Cuomo and State Sen. George Maziarz to announce an agreement between the state of New York and the Seneca Nation concerning the dispute over $600 million of withheld gaming revenues. The Senecas will pay the City of Niagara Falls $89 million - 100 percent of the money the city is owed.
Ceretto issued the following statement:
"This agreement between the state and the Seneca Nation is great news for Western New York and Niagara Falls. My top concern was that Niagara Falls receive the money that it is rightfully owed. Niagara Falls desperately needs this infusion of money to improve its economy and create jobs. This agreement accomplishes that goal, and I am happy to endorse it. The people of Western New York expect their leaders to get things done, and today, we have delivered results."
