SENECA FALLS — Seneca County’s representative in Congress opposes the Seneca-Cayuga Tribe of Oklahoma’s application to put 230 acres of land it owns in Seneca and Cayuga counties into federal trust.

Rep. Tom Reed, R-23 of Corning, joined the state’s two U.S. Senators, Democrats Charles Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand, in opposing the Seneca-Cayuga bid. In a Feb. 28 letter to the Bureau of Indian Affairs, Reed strongly objected to the proposed trust application and recommends the prompt denial of the application made by the out-of-state tribe.
At least there is one issue Republicans and Democrats can agree on: Indians should pay the same taxes as all other Americans.
