More slots OK'd for Fresno Co. tribe


A Fresno County tribe this week won approval from the state to more than quadruple the number of slot machines it operates. The Big Sandy Band of Western Mono Indians secured the 1,650 slot licenses as it continues its long-running push for a new Las Vegas-style casino in the foothills east of Friant. But many questions remain on the project -- including the tribe's ability to pay for and run the new slots.
