Cayuga Nation won't seek gambling license for Class II facility

The Cayuga Nation of New York won't be seeking local approval for its Class II gaming facility.

The tribe reopened the LakeSide Entertainment earlier this month. The facility is not on trust land so the village of Union Springs said it needed a gambling license.

That won't be happening, a spokesperson for the tribe told The Syracuse Post-Standard. So the village could end up taking legal action.

The Bureau of Indian Affairs published a final environmental impact statement on the tribe's land-into-trust application, which includes the LakeSide facility. The tribe has been anticipating a final decision.
