Senecas to NYS: you owe $28K/day

I don't know what the exact points of contention are between the Seneca Nation of Indians and the Empire State, but some sort of arachnid has obviously gotten up the butts of our Native New Yorker friends to the west.

Here's a portion of the press release we received today:

SENECA NATION, CATTARAUGUS TERRITORY (June 12, 2007) – The Council of the Seneca Nation of Indians announced today that the Nation delivered to New York State officials its first bill for vehicular passage on I-90 through Tribal lands.

The amount, $28,000 a day, is based on state Thruway Authority official figures listed on the agency’s Web site. The Council voted May 12, 2007 to charge the state for tolls retroactively to April 14, 2007, when the Council determined that its Thruway right-of-way land agreement was voided, in accordance with Tribal law.

No real comment from this end: just thought I'd share....
