St. Croix tribe has new hope for Beloit casino


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.
