Response From Oneidas on NY State Legislature's Agreement Approval
“The Oneida Nation commends the New York State Legislature for joining the Madison County Board of Supervisors and the Oneida County Legislature in approving this unprecedented agreement," said Oneida Nation Representative Ray Halbritter. "By working hard and selflessly together, the State, both counties and the Oneida Nation have resolved all of the legal disputes between our peoples, once and for all. As we begin this next chapter, we do so as partners working to build shared prosperity for future generations, and a new trust to address any new issues that may arise. The unwavering commitment of Governor Andrew Cuomo, Oneida County Executive Anthony Picente and Madison County Board of Supervisors Chairman John Becker played an essential role in making this moment possible."
