Tribe’s Plan for Catskill Casino, Backed by Paterson, Faces Rejection in Washington
Published: February 8, 2011A proposed Native American casino on 333 acres in the Catskills is likely to be rejected by federal authorities next week, only three months after Gov. David A. Paterson approved the $560 million project in the waning days of his administration. The former governor signed agreements with the Stockbridge-Munsees, a tribe based in Wisconsin with roots in New York, in November to permit a Las Vegas-style casino near Monticello, about 90 miles from New York City, and to settle the tribe’s land claim to 23,000 acres in upstate Madison County. http://www.nytimes.com/2011/02/09/nyregion/09casino.html?_r=1&partner=rss&emc=rss
