The St. Regis Mohawk Tribal Council is asking the U. S. government to drop a fee-to-trust application policy that crumbled an agreement last year between Empire Resorts and the Tribe for the Monticello Raceway Site last year. Tribal Chief James Ransom said he knows the importance of a tribally-operated casino in the area and hopes the new White House administration will see the "injustice" of the policy.
