The Oneida Nation is backing a group called New Yorkers for Local Approval of Casinos.

Expansion of non-Indian gaming is years away, if at all, in the state. But the group already started a campaign to ensure that local voters have the final say over casinos in their communities.

"There should be local approval layered into this," organizer Michael Tobman told The Albany Times-Union.

The Niagara County Legislature tabled a resolution to support a non-Indian casino in Niagara Falls. The Seneca Nation operates a casino there.
