Keno Dispute Settled
(2008-03-21)
(wgvu) - LANSING, Mich. (AP) - The state has settled a long-running
dispute with two American Indian tribes over the Michigan Lottery
Club Keno game.
Governor Jennifer Granholm on Friday announced the new deal with
the Little River Band of Ottawa Indians and the Little Traverse Bay
Bands of Odawa Indians.
The agreement will restore some of the tribes' revenue-sharing
payments to the state. The tribes will pay a lower percentage of
revenue to the state than under previous agreements.
Those payments worth millions of dollars each year had been
suspended for the past few years as the dispute continued.
The tribes argued that Club Keno violated their compacts with
the state.
