Tribal Casinos
(2008-02-06)
(wgvu) - WASHINGTON (AP) - A House panel has considered legislation that
would clear the way for two proposed Indian casinos in Romulus and
Port Huron.
Six Michigan House members were testifying today before the
House Natural Resources Committee on the measures.
The legislation would settle a land dispute, allowing for the
land to house the new casinos in exchange for the settling of 110
acres of land claims in the Upper Peninsula.
Opponents say the planned casinos were both 350 miles from the
tribes' Upper Peninsula reservations.
Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick is scheduled to testify against
the new casinos, which would bring competition to Detroit's three
state-licensed casinos.
The Detroit casinos took in $1.3 billion in revenue last year.
