    From the Buffalo News:

    Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo on Tuesday doubled down on his threat to locate a new casino in the Niagara Falls area in response to the Seneca Nation halting revenue sharing payments from its casino in the Falls.

    “They’re not fulfilling the compact and their right to exclusive gaming is gone,’’ Cuomo said Tuesday afternoon after an economic development event in Rochester.

    “I have no doubt that we would get companies from around the world to bid on casino rights in the Buffalo/Niagara area. I have no doubt,’’ Cuomo said. “Look, we could potentially create more jobs with a different operator.’’

    “Foolish,” responded the leader of the Senecas.

    Jim Wilson of the Seneca Gaming Corporation says the project on top of the existing hotel tower won’t add more rooms, but will change signage to make the tower more identifiable.
