Catskills Casino Compact Now Online

View a copy of the gaming compact between New York and the Stockbridge-Munsee tribe, detailing terms and protocol for the Wisconsin tribe’s establishment of a casino in Thompson, Sullivan County here.

After Gov. David Paterson and tribal President Kimberly Vele signed the document on Nov. 22, the Oneida Nation demanded the release of the document. At that time, Paterson’s counsel Peter Kiernan withheld the compact, attesting disclosure required attorney review and the approval of Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar, reported the timesunion.com.

The Oneida Nation intends to challenge the deal in court.

According to the compact, the state will receive 25 percent of net slot revenue after five years. In exchange for reservation and casino rights in Thompson, the out-of-state tribe ended its claim to almost 24,000 acres in Madison County.

This week, Paterson’s last as governor, he is expected to send the compact to Interior, launching a 45-day review. The casino’s fate lies in Salazar’s approval or rejection — although, if he takes no action, it becomes binding.
