The Enterprise Rancheria of California says litigation against its casino has a financial impact to the tribe and the surrounding community.

The tribe has gained federal and state approval for an off-reservation casino in Yuba County. But litigation is costing the area $600,000 a day, a spokesperson said.

"That's one of the reasons we're so eager to get up and running," spokesperson Charles Altekruse told The Marysville Appeal-Democrat, estimating the casino's annual impact at $230 million.

The Cachil Dehe Band of Wintun Indians, also known as the Colusa Indian Community, and a group called Stand Up! For California are among those fighting the Enterprise Rancheria casino.
