THIS WEEK'S QUESTION:
The state recently reached an agreement with the St. Regis Mohawk Tribe under which the state will not place a new casino in the North Country and the tribe will pay the state $30 million owed under the previous agreement, plus 25 percent of future gambling revenues. Of the $30 million, St. Lawrence County will receive $3.75 million. St. Lawrence County will also receive 6.25 percent of future revenues. Do you think the new agreement or a new casino would be a better source of revenue for St. Lawrence County?
