Tribes opposed to North Fork casino contributed nearly $3M

Tribal interests have contributed nearly $3 million to a ballot initiative against an off-reservation casino for the North Fork Rancheria of Mono Indians.

The Table Mountain Rancheria donated $1.4 million to the effort. An investor for the Picayune Rancheria of the Chukchansi Indians also contributed $1.4 million.

The contributions have paid off. A group called Stand Up for California has collected enough valid signatures for the initiative to appear on the November 2014 ballot.
