BIA to reconsider Stockbridge-Munsee off-reservation casino

The Obama administration will reconsider an off-reservation casino for the Stockbridge Munsee Band of Mohican Indians, The Albany Times-Union reports.

The tribe, based in Wisconsin, wants to build a casino in the Catskills region of New York. The Bush administration rejected the proposal in 2008.

But now that Assistant Secretary Larry Echo Hawk has rescinded a policy that restricted off-reservation gaming, the Bureau of Indian Affairs is taking another look at the proposal. Local leaders and politicians from New York support gaming in the Catskills.
