"We're thankful the arbitration panel held a fair hearing of the facts and ruled in favor of the state and the local communities that have been hurt by the Seneca Nation's actions. It was clear to us that the Nation had an obligation to continue payments - period. According to the Compact, this arbitration process was prescribed to resolve conflicts and now that it's concluded, we ask that the Nation to cease any further delays, make the state and local communities whole, and resume payments."
