Norton lobbied on Choctaw casinoFacebook Twitter Google+
THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 28, 2002 Like the state's governor, Louisiana Attorney General Richard Ieyoub seemed to have found an easy entry into Secretary of Interior Gale Norton's date book. Ieyoub said he met with Norton to tell her of his opposition to the Jena Choctaw Tribe's proposed casino. According to The Baton Rouge Advocate, Ieyoub said Interior officials were unaware of a provision requiring voter approval of casinos. Gov. Mike Foster, who greatly supports the casino, has met with Norton and briefly discussed the Jena Choctaw. Get the Story:
