New York Governor George Pataki says the state Assembly is undermining attempts to bring casinos to Western New York by ignoring an agreement he reached with the Seneca Indians.

The Republican-controlled Senate has approved the deal, but assemblymen have so far proceeded slowly on the issue, which would bring three Las Vegas-style casinos to Niagara Falls, Buffalo and a site near the Seneca reservation.
