Officials in Western New York are speaking out against plans to bring a casino to our area.

The Orleans County Legislature drafted a memo stating it “opposes the location of an additional casino located in Monroe County owned and operated by the Seneca Nation."

The legislators say it would oversaturate the gaming marketplace and cause a financial loss for local Off Track Betting locations and the Batavia Downs Casino.
