An Oklahoma state lawmaker is requesting an investigation into a Muscogee Nation gaming deal, The Native American Times reported.

The tribe is paying $1.4 million a year to name the Expo Square at the Tulsa Fairgrounds as the Muscogee (Creek) Nation Center. The deal requires the Fair Meadows Racetrack to end horse races, which the tribe was partially subsidizing under its Class III gaming compact.

Rep. Don Armes (R) claims the agreement violates the compact. He asked Gov. Mary Fallin (R) and Attorney General Scott Pruitt to investigate how the deal came about.

According to the Times, the Muscogee Nation has been subsidizing races at Fair Meadows for $3.6 million a year.
