It looks like the Timbisha Shoshone Tribe is facing a tough road with a proposed off-reservation casino in California.

According to The Ridgecrest Daily Independent, nearly every member of the public expressed opposition to the project at a city council meeting on Wednesday, prompting officials to delay action on a proposed municipal services agreement with the tribe. The issue will now be considered at a special meeting next Wednesday, the paper said.

The tribe hopes to open a casino near the Naval Air Weapons Station China Lake. A land-into-trust application will be submitted to the Bureau of Indian Affairs.

The tribe has a reservation in Death Valley National Park but it has to look elsewhere for economic development due to restrictions there.
