State House Approves Wayland Casino
(wgvu) - LANSING, Mich. (AP) - A deal that would give the state some
revenue from a planned American Indian casino has been approved by
the state House.
The resolution passed 63-41 today in the Democrat-led House. It
approves a compact negotiated by Governor Jennifer Granholm and the
Match-E-Be-Nash-She-Wish Band of Pottawatomi Indians.
The resolution also must be approved by the Republican-led
Senate to take effect.
The tribe plans to build a casino in Allegan County's Wayland
Township, about 20 miles south of Grand Rapids.
Michigan would receive eight percent of the casino's take from
slot machines for the first $150 million under the compact. The
state would get ten percent or more of the revenue from slot
revenue above that amount.
