Letter writer says county in Washington is wasting money in fight against the Spokane Tribe off-reservation casino:
The Spokane County commissioners have spent over $300,000 on high-priced Seattle lawyers to fight the creation of over 5,000 jobs and an influx of $450 million worth of private investment in Spokane County? They say it is to protect Fairchild Air Force Base, but this economic development project by the Spokane Tribe has been proven multiple times to have no negative impact to Fairchild.

Fairchild, the U.S. Air Force, the Pentagon, leading Base Realignment and Closure experts and the Federal Aviation Administration have all said it is not a problem. It appears that the county commissioners feel they are smarter than all of the aforementioned government entities.
