St. Croix tribe has new hope for Beloit casino

Author:

The St. Croix Band of Chippewa Indians is hopeful that the White House will change federal gaming policy, as it relates to off-reservation casinos. Some actions by Obama Administration officials are fueling talk that change is indeed coming. The St. Croix Chippewa want an off-reservation casino in Beloit, 300 miles from their reservation. They’re appealing a directive from the Bush Administration that discouraged off-reservation casinos, which may have led to their application’s rejection earlier this year.
