The Meskwaki Indian tribe, which spent $111 million on a casino-hotel expansion project near Tama four years ago, is opposing plans for a new, privately operated Tama County gambling operation. The Meskwaki Tribal Council, in a letter sent earlier this month to the Iowa Racing and Gaming Commission, warned that another casino could cause adverse impacts to the existing Meskwaki casino, as well as the Isle Casino in Waterloo.
