Long odds in fight against new Seneca Nation casino
Western Regional Off-Track Betting Corporation is rightly opposed to the idea of a new casino in Henrietta. Whether its objections will be listened to is the big question. The state seems to think gambling is a good way to raise money without raising taxes. It did an excellent job of selling racino expansion to the voting public last November, and the Seneca Nation is saying the deal it reached with Gov. Andrew Cuomo last year would allow for more Indian casinos in the Senecas’ exclusivity zone.
