Tulalip Tribes see drop in gaming revenues

The Tulalip Tribes of Washington cut budget this year after seeing a drop in gaming revenues.

Chairman Mel Sheldon said revenues at its casinos started to drop in October 2008. But the tribe isn't planning to make any job cuts.

"Layoffs will be a tool of last resort," Sheldon told The Everett Herald.

The tribe opened a $130 million hotel at one of its casinos last year. Sheldon said the hotel does well, especially on weekends.
