Stockbridge-Munsee Community still pursuing New York casino

The Stockbridge-Munsee Community of Wisconsin is still pursuing an off-reservation casino in the Catskills region of New York.

The tribe has been pursuing the casino since 2001. The project suffered one defeat when the Bush administration barred nearly all off-reservation gaming in 2008.

A second setback came when the Obama administration rejected a Class III gaming compact with the tribe in 2011. But the tribe isn't giving up.

"The tribe's application is very much alive at the Bureau of Indian Affairs," attorney Don Miller told The Middletown Times Herald-Record.

The Catskills is a region about 90 miles north of New York City.
