Governor David Paterson visits Niagara Falls Wednesday, for another Town Hall-style meeting.

Tuesday morning he called into Buffalo radio station WBEN. Paterson fielded questions about everything from the state's fiscal crisis to the tax issue involving the Cayuga and Seneca Indian Nations' cigarette sales.

"This has been a problem for 30-years and what we think we're going to do is look at our department of taxation in terms of creating a way in which those who do business with those entities will not get, in other words, cooperation from New York state. Because it's killing our small businesses ," the Governor said.

Paterson plans to hold a Town Hall meeting in Rochester, March 11, at the Riverside Convention Center. Doors open at 4:30 p.m. and the event begins at 5:30 p.m..

On March 12, he holds the second student Town Hall meeting at SUNY Geneseo's Wadsworth Auditorium. Doors open at 10 a.m. and that event begins at 11 a.m.
