New York governor open to tobacco tax sharing
New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer (D) is open to a revenue-sharing agreement over tobacco taxes.

Spitzer has said he will enforce a state law that requires the collection of taxes on the sale of tobacco to non-Indians. Tribes and tribal retailers are opposed to the law but Spitzer said he is open to '“creative” ways to address the issue.

In other states, tribes have agreed to collect a state tax, or the equivalent, for a share of the revenues.
