The Seneca Nation is urging New York state to give the National Indian Gaming Commission (NIGC) the time it needs to finish its continuing assessment of the Nation’s gaming compact, while rejecting the state’s threat to obstruct it.

New York state is demanding $540 million in cash payments from two casinos by Wednesday.

If the payment is not paid, the authorities will seek to seize the funds, according to the letter. The letter comes while the NIGC is still working on completing its review of the compact payments and issuing an official report.

The Seneca Nation Council passed a resolution on Feb. 12 requesting that the National Indian Gaming Commission study and make a final ruling on whether increased revenue-sharing payments to New York state are legal under the Indian Gaming Regulatory Act.g
