Subscription questions? Call 470-NEWS Pataki: N.Y. Must Collect Ull IIIUIUII UUIUO State km already required cotteding the soJes taxes, but governor refused earlier. Staff and news service reports Albany Gov. George Pata- ki confirmed Wednesday that his tax department is drafting regu- lations to require the payment of sales taxes to the state for ciga- rette and gasoline purchases by non-Indians on Indian land across New York. The move is a change from Pataki's previous strategy in dealing with the issue. In 2003, the Legislature adopted a law requiring Pataki to collect such taxes, but the gover- nor never carried through, hop- ing instead to negotiate agree- ments with New York tribes to resolve the sales tax issues, along with land claims and pro- visions for additional Indian- owned gambling casinos. He has had only mixed success on that front. While the Legislature passed an even tougher law last year re- quiring the sales tax collections, Pataki vetoed it, saying it would work against his goal of working out cooperative agreements under which Indian nations to make payments to the state in lieu of the taxes or voluntarily collect the taxes themselves. The Legislature failed to override the veto. Nonetheless, Pataki said Wednesday that he is now hav- ing his tax department draft rules to collect the taxes. That is seen in some quarters as a bargaining ploy to strengthen his hand in negotiations with the Indians. "It's not what I would like to see happen, but we're going to obey the (2003) law." Pataki i said Wednesday. "The law that was passed by the Legislature re- quired that we take these steps." Reminded that he had raised concerns last year about infring- ing on Indian sovereignty by im- posing such collections, Pataki said, still believe that, but we're going to abide by the law. That's what we have to do." Indian vendors have refused to reveal the volume of their sales and estimates by non-Indians vary widely.

Dean speech impresses college Dems 03 MPOST-STAKOAM) By Rebecca James Staff writer The ever-brash Howard Dean told a friendly crowd of students at Cornell University Wednesday that he was not going to sing their praises for turning out on Election Day last fall. You vote, you said. Dean, the former presidential candi- date and recently elected chair of the Democratic National Committee, pointed out that you can pass with a D, but bare- ly. "If you want to sustain democracy, you have to ran for he said. "If you don't want to run for office, then you have to work on someone's campaign." In the audience of 380, which gave Dean three standing ovations, senior Randy Uang was impressed by the call to action. "My eyes were tearing he said. Uang isn i a registered Democrat, but he volunteered for John Kerry's presiden- tial campaign and said he thinks he'll eventually get involved again in the way Dean suggests. "He's raising the Uang said. "It's really cool." Before his lecture, Dean attended a brief rally outside the student union, where he spent about 10 minutes speak- ing and shaking hands. The Cornell Dem- ocrats club, which sponsored the speech, also organized the rally for students who missed out on the free tickets to the speech, which were claimed within three hours last week. Amone about 200 watching the rally were several members of the Cornell Col- lege Republicans, who held signs includ- ing: "Dean for president of France." "We just want to have a little bit of fun with said Sandy Czelusniak, a sophomore. "If Democrats are really se- rious about reaching out to the majority, then they wouldn't have chosen such an extreme candidate." 9 State to build Hortri Work on million, 200-bed building to begin in spring; part of expansion.
