ALBANY - The future home of casinos in New York could depend on negotiations with three Native American tribes.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo had a news conference Thuesday at the state Capitol. He explained that the Seneca’s owe the state $500 million from a revenue sharing agreement with the state.

Cuomo says the state also has an ongoing dispute with the Mohawks.

The Oneidas, who run Turning Stone, do not have any kind of revenue sharing or exclusivity agreement with the state. So the state could build a casino there.
