There's a report just out that a Western New York indian tribe wants the state to consider giving it the right to develop a casino in Rochester.
The Seneca Indians owe more than 570 million dollars to state and local governments as part of an earlier agreement involving casinos already operated by the tribe.
The Senecas have held up those payments because they feel an agreement for exclusive gambling rights in Western NY has been breached.
Now, the Buffalo News quotes sources as saying that before the Senecas pay even part of that money, they want the Cuomo administration to make several concessions, including giving it casino development rights in downtown Rochester.
Rochester Mayor Tom Richards has said he would not support a casino downtown, partly because it would change the character of the area.
