The city council in Barstow, California, will consider a resolution to support an off-reservation casino for the Los Coyotes Band of Cahuilla and Cupeno Indians.

After being rejected by the Bush administration, the tribe resubmitted a land-into-trust application for 23 acres in Barstow. The site is more than 100 miles from the reservation

The Bureau of Indian Affairs is working on a environmental impact statement for the project.
