The Buffalo Niagara Partnership board of directors endorsed the understanding between the state and the Seneca Nation for casino gaming in Buffalo and Niagara Falls.

"Our members have spoken clearly in favor of casino gambling," said Mark Hamister, partnership board chairman. "The message is do it now and do it right."

The board noted the potential significance of the effort to revitalize Niagara Falls and hopes that could be accomplished by building attractions that will bring more tourists to the region.
