Cuomo makes case to delay public vote on casinos

(Continued)

Niagara Gazette — A week ago the Siena College poll found New Yorkers only slightly favored Las Vegas-style casinos in the state.

This week Springfield, Mass., chose MGM Resorts International as the preferred developer for a resort casino that would be a short drive from eastern and central New York. MGM is seeking to build an $800 million resort casino on 14.5 acres.

Massachusetts's 2011 gambling law allows for up to three regional resort casinos, including one in western Massachusetts. Hard Rock International has proposed a casino in West Springfield and Mohegan Sun has a plan for the town of Palmer. The state's gambling commission will chose one of the three projects, likely in early 2014.

Do you think cigarette sales to non-Native American customers should be taxed on reservations?

Yes. Items should be taxed like they are everywhere else.
No, the indian reservations are sovereign land and they are selling them on their land.
Not up to me. Native Americans decide the rules on their land.
Don't care. Smoking isn't good for you.
