Public Gaming's Political News

The county has been trying for years to get the Cayugas to pay county, town and school district taxes on the more than 1,200 acres the nation owns in the county and acquired since 2003.  The Sherrill vs. Oneida Indian Nation U.S. Supreme Court case ruled that tribes have to pay taxes on non-reservation land they own.
"We need a concerted effort to make sure that nothing happens in the lame duck, and we need to brace ourselves for 2015 at the federal level," said John Pappas executive director of the PPA. "There's certainly opportunity for some shenanigans to happen, and everyone in the gaming industry should be keeping a close watch on what Congress may do, he said."
