Lobbyist says limits on slots hurt tribal casinos


South Dakota is harming economic development by limiting the number of slot machines allowed in the tribal casinos scattered around the state, a lobbyist for a regional tribal gambling group told a legislative panel Tuesday. "I think we're missing an opportunity," said Jeremiah M. Murphy of the Great Plains Indian Gaming Association, which includes tribes from South Dakota, North Dakota, Montana, Wyoming, Nebraska, Kansas and Iowa.
