Proposition 48, To Permit Vegas-Style Indian Casino In Central Valley, Trailing With 30% Of Vote Counted
A Native American tribe’s plan for a Las Vegas-style casino in the Central Valley nearly 40 miles from its reservation was trailing with a third of the votes counted on Tuesday evening.
There is more hope for opponents of a Rohnert Park casino following a ruling in favor of a Michigan man who is trying to block a tribal casino in that state.
Some Sonoma County residents are taking legal action to block the construction of a major Indian casino just outside Rohnert Park.
The state Senate has approved an agreement with a Northern California Indian tribe that plans to build a casino in Sonoma County.
The two casinos fear they are losing too much business to Las Vegas and Indian gaming facilities.
