Schmit and other opponents say the relaxed rules on off-reservation casinos are merely a payoff to the tribes, which have made the president their top recipient of campaign cash in the last two years. The epicenter of the battle is in California, one of six states -- along with Washington, Florida, Oklahoma, Arizona and Connecticut -- that account for more than two-thirds of all Indian gaming revenue. In Congress, both Feinstein and Sen. And from coast to coast, the tribes are finding plenty of resistance as they angle to get closer to big cities, busy freeways, military bases, even popular national parks. Grand Forks City Council members gave qualified support for the project, passing a resolution in October expressing interest and encouraging the tribe to continue their work to get state and federal approval. But even with the new policy change, Brandon, the tribal consultant, said that tribes face a hard fight, noting that "getting land taken into trust off-reservation for gaming is a very, very difficult proposition. It said the casino would attract 1. Since the U.

The expansions are the latest twist in the nation's Indian casino wars, and they mark a major shift for the tribes, which already run casinos and bingo halls in 29 states. Cheryl Schmit, founder and director of Stand Up For California, a statewide organization that has been leading the fight against more casinos, called the rule change a mistake and said, if allowed to stand, it could result in casinos opening "on every off-ramp. Opponents of the proposed new casinos hope that both the courts and Congress ultimately will slow the tribes' momentum.

Daniel Inouye. News Jun 4th - 3pm. The move already has ignited a debate over how quickly the U. The council reserved endorsement of the casino's potential benefits until after it cleared those initial hurdles. But Steve Gralla, chief financial officer for the Twenty-Nine Palms Band, said a new casino would create at least new jobs. With the high court ruling against Salazar in an decision on June 18, Schmit said the justices delivered a strong rebuke. The Grand Forks Casino Petition Committee, which opposes the casino, gathered its own data from studies on other casinos. But they're extremely rare, with only a handful approved by the federal government. She said "the problem is only going to get worse," with some tribes vying to open new casinos more than miles from their tribal headquarters. Supreme Court cleared the way for large-scale Indian gambling 25 years ago, tribes have been forced to keep the majority of their casinos on reservation land held in trust by the federal government, usually in remote regions far from public view. Kathryn Rand, co-director and a founder of the Institute for the Study of Tribal Gaming Law and Policy at UND said one big change caused by Indian gaming is that tribes can now afford to spend millions on Capitol Hill and in statehouses across the nation to try to get their way. Andrew Cuomo and many state legislators who are pushing to have the state open casinos of its own.

But experts say it's just common business sense for tribes to try to go to places where they can woo more gamblers. It's a familiar story in Grand Forks where city leaders showed interest in a tribal casino southwest of town in , but residents waged a petition campaign against it. Herald Staff Writer Chris Bjorke contributed to this report. Backers say that dropping the "commutable distance standard" adopted by the Bush administration will lead to more off-reservation casinos and help tribes create more jobs. The plans are extraordinary for one reason: In all three cases, the tribes want to build their palaces on new land that's not part of their original reservations.

The Grand Forks casino would have been the only tribally-owned casino in North Dakota to be operated outside of a reservation. Former Council member Curt Kreun said city leaders held occasional meetings with the tribe over the years, but the project never advanced enough to address key points, including police authority over the tribally-owned property and payments in lieu of taxes on the tax-exempt land.
