Senator Chuck Schumer: "I will do what I can" EXTENDED INTERVIEW

By By PAT BAILEY

U.S. Senator Charles Schumer, (D) New York, said Thursday he will do whatever he can to help the lawsuit filed by the state of New York, along with Madison and Oneida counties.

Schumer says he has already talked with representatives from the Department of the Interior, but he says they are being "very cold" about the matter.

The senator says he doesn't think the D.O.I. Understands the ripple affects the decision will have on the area, saying he believes the D.O.I. thinks they are dealing with vast empty grasslands like other Indian lands in the Midwest.
