The occasion marked an important milestone in the construction of the property’s latest expansion.

Seneca Allegany Casino & Hotel announced plans in August to build a new hotel tower at the popular resort located in New York’s Southern Tier. Construction began at the end of 2011 and has progressed according to schedule. Officials expect the new tower to open in the winter.

Congressman Higgins Pushes for Termination of National Flood Insurance Program

Congressman Brian Higgins (NY-27) joined fellow House of Representatives Homeland Security Committee member Candice Miller (MI-10) in introducing an amendment to H.R. 1309, the Flood Insurance Reform Act of 2011, which would terminate the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). 

“The Flood Insurance Program is fundamentally flawed and economically broken,” said Higgins.  “In Western New York and other communities across the nation it levies a mandatory flood tax on homeowners who are at virtually no risk of flooding and see absolutely no benefit.  It hinders small business growth, negatively impacts property values and is driving up our national debt.  We need to lead with common sense and eliminate, rather than extend, this unfair program.”
