The agreement reached between New York State, Oneida and Madison Counties and the Oneida Indian Nation is a done deal.

US District Court Judge Lawrence Kahn gave final approval to the settlement agreement today.

County Executive Anthony Picente calls it an historic day in Oneida County.

Picente says March 4th will be remembered as the day when all the past tensions between neighbors have finally been laid to rest.

He says with this final approval in federal court, all sides are partners working together to grow the community — both economically and culturally.

Oneida Indian Nation Representative Ray Halbritter issued a statement in response to the finalization of the settlement agreement between the Oneida Nation and the State of New York.

Halbritter said that they are pleased that the state has become a formal partner in their continuing efforts to strengthen the region’s economy.

Halbritter added that with the State as a partner, they are excited to begin a new era of shared prosperity between the Oneida Nation and New York State.
