The city of Spokane, Washington, no longer opposes the Spokane Tribe off-reservation casino.

The city council voted last night to drop opposition to the Spokane Tribe Economic Project. The official position is now neutral.

The Bureau of Indian Affairs published the final environmental impact statement for the West Plains Mixed-Use Development over a year ago. A record of decision has yet to be issued.
