At least four lawmakers are now allies of the Seneca Indian Nation in the tribe’s battle with the governor’s office over the sharing of casino profits with local governments and not-for-profit organizations. State Sen. George D. Maziarz, R-Newfane; State Sen. Catharine M. Young, R-Olean; Assemblyman Mark J. F. Schroeder, D-Buffalo; and Assemblyman Joseph Giglio, R-Gowanda, appeared with Seneca leaders at a news conference Sunday outside the tribe’s Buffalo Creek Casino in downtown Buffalo.
