Seneca Nation lobbies governor on tobacco tax bill
The Seneca Nation is sending a delegation to lobby New York Gov. David Paterson (D) on a tobacco tax bill.

The tribe says state taxation violates treaty rights and its sovereignty. Taxation will hurt the local economy and lead to unemployment, according to Seneca leaders.

Paterson hasn't stated his views on the bill.
