Mohawks stop sharing NY casino revenue with state

Albany, New York (AP) October 2010
 
The St. Regis Mohawk Tribal Council says it has stopped sharing revenue from its casino along New York’s northern border with the state, claiming the exclusivity provision of its compact has been violated.

Tribal Chief Mark Garrow says the second-quarter check for about $4.9 million has not been sent. He declined to specify exactly what state officials did against its seven-county exclusive rights to install and operate slot machines.

Garrow says the move isn’t related to Paterson administration attempts to tax tribal cigarette sales to non-Indians and isn’t coordinated with the Seneca tribe’s withholding more than $200 million from the state from its three casinos in western New York.

A call to Paterson’s office last week was not immediately returned.
