The Seneca Nation of Indians is considering a Rochester-area casino in the town of Henrietta — a gaming and hotel facility that comes just after the state agreed to a new revenue-sharing plan with the tribe.

It is likely the expansion could require new legislation, since it is beyond the Senecas current three-casino franchise, but lies within its exclusivity zone.

The Cuomo administration and the Seneca Nation settled a long-standing dispute that resulted in the tribe agreeing to send some of its revenue held in a trust to the state, while New York officials agreed to respect the exclusivity zone as it seeks to build commercially run casinos.

A constitutional referendum due before voters this year would allow for an expansion of casino gambling in New York to include non-Indian table-top gaming.

So-called “enabling” legislation provides for up to four casinos in the first phase of construction with zones limited to the Catskills, the Albany area and the Southern Tier.

The Seneca Nation announced today it has retained Flaum Rochester LLC, part of Flaum Management Company in Rochester to organize and coordinate the development with local officials.

“The Seneca Nation is interested in looking for opportunities to grow and complement our gaming operations, consistent with our contractual restrictions under the SGC’s current financing,” said Seneca Nation President Barry E. Snyder, Sr in a statement released today. “David Flaum and his team have a proven track record and we see this as a good fit.”
