This article from the Star Tribune is about the casinos in Minnesota that have always been run by the Indian tribes on Indian reservations. Now there is a battle with non-indians to have a casino off the reservations and not run by the Native Americans. The Native Americans are fighting back by hiring many lobbyists to fight for their cause on January 24th. They know many people in the government like for instance Michele Kelm-Helgen (Mark Dayton's deputy of staff) and will do what it takes to not let a casino emerge that is not on Indian land. The tribes have spent millions on political campaigns to stop other casinos from starting up in Minnesota not run by them. They may also have to deal with the financing of the news Vikings stadium from their gambling revenues. But the tribes have gambling contracts with the state that do not require them to share any money they earn with the state and it does not have an expiration date. Whoever has gone against the tribes in the past has yet to win and they have gone all the way to the White House and back. The Indians are very serious in keeping casinos only to tribes.
