Negotiations continue on Oklahoma tribal tobacco compacts

So far this year, 11 tribes have reached new tobacco compacts with the state of Oklahoma and negotiations continue for other potential agreements.

The Cherokee Nation, the largest in the state, is close to an agreement, The Native American Times reported. The Osage Nation, another big seller, is still in talks but one proposal was rejected by the state, the paper said.

More than 20 compacts are due to expire this week. Gov. Mary Fallin (R) refused to agree to extensions.
