(Breaking)State and Senecas reach casino agreement...

Governor Andrew Cuomo is in western New York this afternoon... announcing an agreement with the Seneca Indian Nation in a long-running standoff over casino gambling.  The 3:30 p.m. announcement came one day after Seneca President Barry Snyder, Sr. met with members of Cuomo's administration for several hours in Albany.  The Senecas operate casinos in Buffalo, Niagara Falls and Salamanca under an agreement with the state that requires them to share slot machine revenues in exchange for being the only casino operators in the region.  But... the tribe has been withholding payments since 2009, contending New York broke its exclusivity promise by allowing video lottery terminals at nearby racetracks.  Part of those casino payments go to the three cities.
