  • Seneca Nation angered by New York cigarette tax law

    Irving, New York (AP) 12-08

    Seneca Tribal President Barry Snyder accused Gov. David Paterson of knowingly signing a flawed bill into law to avoid an embarrassing override by state lawmakers had he vetoed the measure instead.

    A day after Paterson approved legislation intended to enforce collection of excise taxes on cigarettes sold at Indian-owned stores, an angry Snyder said during mid December that tribal leaders were weighing options that included legal action and a media campaign in protest.
